Are you burned out reading the same bedtime books to your child night after night after night? You both know the words by heart and, frankly, you've been phoning in your performance. One idea is to try a book without words so you and your child are free to invent your own story every night of the week.

We love the book, Popping Through Pictures, pictured above by artist Amanda Vissel for it's intriguing artwork with endless possibilities for storytelling. Besides helping beat the boredom, child-led storytelling can give parents fascinating insights into what's on their child's mind.

What wordless books do you love?
