Flotsam by David Wiesner
Flotsam: Something that floats.

 It floats in the ocean,
 it may wash up on the beach,

where someone may find it
and be astonished,

and share the discovery with someone else-
as David Wiesner shares it with you.

Flotsam is the 2007 winner of the Caldecott Medal. This unique wordless picture book tells the story of a camera that gets washed from shore to shore. Wiesner's vivid illustrations tells the story of things that may lie deep within the ocean. 

It was fun introducing a wordless book to my daughter, at first she didn't know what to make of it. After going through the book a few times, she had an aha moment and explained to me how to tell which illustrations are photos from the camera by the black outline. I rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars.
