Book Overview

This simple yet powerful picture book--from a New York Times bestselling husband-and-wife team--tells the story of one girl who inspires a community to stand up to bullying. The perfect back-to-school read for every kid, family and classroom

Inspired by real events, I Walk with Vanessa explores the feelings of helplessness and anger that arise in the wake of seeing a classmate treated badly, and shows how a single act of kindness can lead to an entire community joining in to help. By choosing only pictures to tell their story, the creators underscore the idea that someone can be an ally without having to say a word. With themes of acceptance, kindness, and strength in numbers, this timeless and profound feel-good story will resonate with readers young and old.

A New York Public Library Best Book of the Year

This beautifully illustrated story shows young readers how to become caring and supportive upstanders. Love it --Trudy Ludwig, bestselling author of The Invisible Boy

   Such a powerful, beautiful message!
I buy the books I take for my children very seriously, and this one is well worth it! It has no words, just pictures, so that you can choose the language with which you explain what is happening. Both our children, 3.5 and 5.5, enjoy this book.

   Sweet, simple story
If your child is going to the school or is attending a new school, this story will teach them how to process their own anxieties and respect others. Just a little bit of listening, you learn a lot about your child's life.

   Please make this a BIG book for school use!
I attended a Teaching Conference '', where another teacher recommended this book to me. I went directly to the app for my local library to put it on hold ''. I sat in it with my own two children, 6 and 8, to read it. We enjoyed the book for all! My children immediately noticed how some images used color to emphasize specific characters, while others blend into the background. I loved it so much that I decided to order it for use in the classroom. I know that this book in many ways will be valuable to my students, but the illustrations are not very large. I am hoping that my Document Camera will be able to enlarge the pictures on my screen. I don 't know if I will be able to capture some of the images that span two pages, though. I hope publishers will consider creating a version that will be easier to use for the whole group instruction. I would love to use this in my Kindergarten classroom for multiple teaching points.

   3year old loves this book
I like that there are no printed words because it really makes the book great for discussion. My three year old notices different things every time we read it and changes the story each time a little bit different. Yesterday she told me about a new friend she made at the preschool and told me that the girl was new and she made friends with her just like in the book... adored the application.

   Wordless
I love the story and the message, but as other reviewers noted, this has no words. I have no problem with wordless picture books, but I wish this had been clearer from the summary, as it will not work for the purpose I had intended. Granted, I could have read the reviews, but it was highly rated and I liked the sound of it, so I didn 't feel the need to research it deeply. The reason this won 't work for me is that I am a teacher in a classroom where there is no room to sit for alouds, so that I have to walk around the room as I read. In addition to the lack of words, the illustrations are pretty small, so that I think this is better suited for individual or small group reading.

   There are zero words in this book.
I bought this book in the hopes of helping our adopted daughter carry on appropriate friendships, but there are no words in this book. The illustrations are adorable, but not entirely apparent as to what is happening. I needed for her a book with words. Unfortunately, this will be returned.

   Must-have for elementary classrooms
After being introduced to this book by a coworker, I had to buy it for my second grade classroom! It is a wonderful book about kindness and friendship and I already have several ideas for how to use it in various lessons.

   A wonderful book!
Beautiful book, and so happy that I bought it. I bought it for social skills lessons for a kindergarten class, but before I put it to work, I read it to my four-year-old son. He loved it and was sad that I put it to work. I really like that it prompts kids to pay attention to non-verbal communication and to identify feelings and emotions and to use their empathy skills. I am particularly appreciative of the great way the book differentiated between telling and tattling-telling is to get someone out of trouble.

   A sweet wordless picture book!
I always enjoy reading wordless picture books with the class because everyone sees something different on each page and we discuss each page at length. I thought this book was amazingly illustrated. '' Through these simple illustrations, there was great care and detail in the expressions of each character, that my 2nd graders understood and empathized with the feelings of the characters. Lastly, I appreciated that this book had four bullet points at the end of the book about how children can help someone who is bullied. It was a nice way to end the book and helped emphasize the overall message of the book.
