This is a great book that is told by illustrations. The story is about animals who have cake and it ends up being stolen. This story would be perfect for an elementary classroom because some students struggle with reading. This book makes it possible for students to visualize the story and put their own words into it.

Where Is the Cake Now? is a series of colorful and graphic illustrations of animals who are searching for the perfect picnic spot in the sprawling green hills of the countryside. The whole scenario is initially filled with giddy creatures, and then gradually readers see how their emotions go from happy to tired and frustrated, especially when they cross the river and trek up to the hills.

This is a fun book all in pictures. It has no text, so it's great for many different levels. I had Luke read the pictures and write a story about what he saw. Since there are many different stories that can be told with the pictures, it is a fun and creative activity. Rylan enjoyed tracking the cake. There is at least one other book in this series, so I will probably look for it next time we are at the library.

This book without words tells the story of a community of animals that are going on a picnic. The prize food items of the day are two delicious looking cakes. They get passed from animal to animal as they go through different obstacles to get to the picnic site. When they finally get there, the cakes are gone! Can you figure out who has taken them?

Good for preschool storytimes.

Kind of had a Where's Waldo feeling to it. This is a picture book with pretty weak illustrations. I think it would have a short shelf life.

Didn't realize this was a wordless book til we got it home from the library. I'm sure those are good for kiddos of a certain age, but I'm not big on them for story time.

There are no words in this book, just illustrations. The pictures are great in that the children make up different tales as to what is happening in the story as they try to find the cake.

This no-text book is a real eye-treat about two disappearing cakes after several animals and reptiles climb a very long hill to have a picnic.
