We hope you all had a great Fourth of July weekend. I took some time away from reading and went to see the movie Wall-E, which I loved. It was pretty amazing how so much of the story was told without words, but rather with sounds and animation. Watching it I was thinking how much it was like reading a graphic novel. There was a lot unspoken, but still you heard it as you watched. The same thing happens when I am reading a book where there are more pictures than words. I just fill in the blanks with my own thoughts and interpretation. That does not happen when I am reading a traditional book!
