    1. See this purple foot-shaped bruise on the back of my left leg? Wanna know how I got it? Of course you do, oh imaginary people I’m talking to in my head. Yeah, I got that by kicking myself for not having a copy of The Boys by Jeff Newman on hand the other day. I will endeavor to explain. You see I was working the children’s reference desk in my library when a mother walked up to me with an interesting request. “Do you have any wordless picture books?” she asked. Do I! Merrily I skipped ba [...]


    2. I only opened this book to get a feel for the sort of book it was. I was immediately captivated by the art, the wordless story. I set it down with misty eyes and a wide smile. What a book! My problem is that I want you to discover it and I don’t want to mess any of its wonder of wordlessness up for you. I’ve tried to put words to it, but it seems to minimize the story, as if pinning it down removes the life from it. So I will briefly tell you the premise and proceed to gush about it in more [...]


    3. When I first picked this book up I was like 'what kind of book is this' I flipped through it and since it didn't have any text other than the days of the week I put it aside since I was reading outloud to my adult special needs son. But then I thought the little boy on the cover looked cute, so I picked it up and 'read' it. Each page is very nicely illustrated with emotions and lessons learned. It teaches a little boy in the most incredible way how to overcome his shyness and join the other kids [...]


    4. In this wordless picture book, a bashful boy works up the courage to join the other kids in a neighborhood baseball game. Thanks to the gentle nudging of a group of “old-timers” that he meets on a park bench, the boy transforms from a shy bystander to an active participant as his confidence grows. Newman deftly illustrates how the old men coax the boy to evolve with his gesture-filled character sketches paired with bold brushstrokes. No need for words.


    5. Practically wordless, I love love love the old men's faces and the lengths they go to in order to help a new kid get up the gumption to join the local baseball game.



    6. I absolutely love this book. With no text other than the days of the week marking the passage of time, Jeff Newman has told a fantastic story of a shy little boy's whose inspiration comes from an unlikely source.Day One: father and son unload a moving van. Boy unpacks his box of beloved baseball gear, then heads for the local park, where a group of kids are engaged in a lively game. He is too shy to ask for a place on the field, so he seats himself on a bench beside four older gentlemen who are [...]


    7. A wordless picture book about a young boy finding the courage, with the help of some old timers, to join the game at the park. ( summary)The Boys by Jeff Newman is an essentially wordless book, naming days of the week to indicate when action took place. The illustrations are rendered in gouache and ink and effectively tell the story through body language & facial expressions. There's a retro feel to the illustrations. The sequence where the boy is harrassed/encouraged by the old men to get i [...]


    8. I love this little picture book! It's a wordless picture book (the only words are the days of the week) and it's the story of one boy's week and his desire to play baseball in his new town. The illustrations are cute, although at times felt a bit undone. (There's a bird on one page that appears to missing a head!) The storyline may be a bit hard for younger kids to follow, but with the help of adult guiding them, I think they would enjoy it. I'm not sure if kids would get the humor as much as ki [...]


    9. Except for the pages labeled with days of a single week, this is a wordless but eloquent book. When a young boy moves to a new neighborhood his world turns around in the space of one week. First overcome with shyness, he packs away his baseball gear. Then,m day by day, he joins, identifies with, is challenged by a quartet of old gents on a park bench. Eventually they lead him to participating in the baseball game, and they, too, leave their bench to participate as his cheering gallery.White spac [...]


    10. This wordless picture book shows a little boy afraid to fail on the baseball field sitting on the sidelines with a bunch of old men. Sick of seeing a young man wasting his youth, the old guys get together and play ball themselves. Reading this book is almost like watching a cartoon. The faces of the characters are really well-drawn, and some of the images are laugh-out-loud funny.Read at Read-Along Story Time on 4/4/13: storytimesecrets/


    11. okay People! What am I missing? In general I hate wordless books, but this book.I loathe! I just don't get it! I do not like the artwork, I can't tell if it is girl or a boy (thanks cover for clarifying that) and I just don't get itI was bored from the first page.I looked through it again to see what the buzz with the 5 and 4 stars ratings. I still don't get it! Are the old men playing games playing on the monkey bars or is the kid imagining it? SO lost and so bored just writing this ease don't [...]


    12. A little boy is to shy to join the local baseball game. Instead he chooses to hang out with the older gentlemen on the sidelines. This hilariously turns out to include dressing like the older men. The gentlemen decide someone needs a little push in the right direction. So they begin to lead the little boy into common activities for young children until the boy is confident enough to join the local boys in a pick up game of baseball. Fabulous!


    13. I adored this nearly wordless picture book! By telling the story through the days of the week, Newman sets up the sweet tale of a little boy trying to find a way to fit in. I love that the story could take you almost anywhere that you and your little one reading it are willing to go (and therein lies the wonder and imagination in wordless picture books). I could see it going from early elementary on up--you really can make it work!


    14. This was not what I expected. I can't say I loved the illustrations, they have a certain 1970's charm to them, with a little androgynous 2010 flair. Perhaps I'm losing visual IQ points, but I didn't quite get the story clearly. If I had a child of an appropriate age I'd try this on them. That said, it was a fun story, just not my favorite.


    15. I expected this book to be about baseball, but it was more than that. At first, it was annoying that there were basically no words. My 5-year-old son made me come up with my own words, which was not exactly what I had in mind when I grabbed a book for bedtime. The illustrations did tell a cute little story, though. Now that I realize it's not a book for reading, I might give it another try. :)


    16. The only words in this picture book are the days of the week. A boy wants to play baseball with the other boys. But he is afraid, so spends his time sitting with old men on a park bench. Before you know it, he looks like the old men! The old men notice and help him discover the way to join the baseball fun.


    17. This nearly wordless book is all about getting in the game - especially when it feels difficult to do so. I adored the simplicity of the illustrations and the use of bright colors. I'd love to read this with other people and hear what words they insert into the story.


    18. A boy, too shy to join the baseball game, finds courage and support from an unlikely source-- the old timers sitting on a park bench. Completely wordless (except for the days of the week-- this book will invite readers to make up their own story from the images.



    19. A shy guy would like to join a baseball game. He has a little help from the senior citizen set & they are all able to get into the game.

    21. Right up there in my favourite wordless books category. Boom. Landed there pretty much instantly. Oh the things going on in this book . . .



    22. Becky says, "Brilliant wordless picture book in a retro style. Comedy in pictures; small details appear with repeated readings."



    23. A beautiful, nearly wordless picture book about a young boy who through the help of some "old" boys at the park learn how to play or get involved in the game. Lovely illustrations.
