This is an adapted book for use with young children or those with special needs. It has predicable lines for repeated readings and can be used in the Spring and at Easter. There are swatches to use in matching to the pages. You can velcro the pages and match that way and it makes a good literacy activity for some of our special needs population. Examples of ways to use this book include targeting colors, shapes, and print concepts of reading top to bottom and left to right. This book can be used with an individual child or in a small group. You can adapt as needed for each child's needs. For example, a child may need fewer swatches to choose from for matching so you can begin with two and increase difficulty as needed. As a speech language pathologist, I use these types of books regularly. There will be more to come!!
