Interactive books are a must for teaching concepts; this one has 28 language tasks! Students with language delays have trouble with abstract WHAT questions, but this book can drive the concept home. It's useful and engaging for non-speaking children, autistic students, visual learners, kinesthetic learners, late talkers, and children with high energy!

As a ⭐BONUS⭐ this download comes with a handy teaching tool to teach HOW to answer WHAT questions!



  • uses relatable and diverse characters engaging in familiar activities
  • often prompts the child to point to something on the page or perform an action
  • has pages that require students to tell the answer verbally OR children who are non-speaking can physically “give” or adhere the answer to the book by choosing the appropriate image from the 12 moveable picture choices.
  • Unlike some interactive books, students cannot rely on matching to interact with this book.
  • Comes with detailed directions for use and assembly!


► Use this interactive book to teach students about actions and how to answer “what” questions. “What” questions most often require an answer that includes an object so when the answer requires an action, it can really throw our students off!

► The first page about each “character” explains the action they are doing and why they are doing it. It also prompts the reader to perform the action - a fun & truly interactive part of this activity!

► The next page asked students a question that requires them to tell the action that was performed (such as “What is Alex doing?”). They can give the answer verbally or children with more limited verbal skills can physically “give” the answer by choosing the appropriate action from the 12 moveable picture choices.

► The goal is to get the child to pair the picture with a verbal (or AAC) response. If they don't offer a verbal response, model it for the child. The repetitive nature of this book is likely to eventually shape a verbal response. Your modeling is key!

► Because it's natural for children with language deficits to resort to visual matching, I used “reversed” images to reduce this tendency. Even if the child seems to just be matching pictures, your repetitive modeling can still drive the concept home!
