If you are familiar with my best-selling Seasonal Key Teaching Points Book Lists then you will want this THEMED list too! Have you ever wanted an easy catalog to help you find the BEST picture books to use with your students? These non-seasonal themed book lists will help you confidently select the best read-aloud books to teach critical literacy skills like targeting vocabulary, character analysis, narrative structure, etc. Are you looking for picture books in speech therapy with specific articulation sounds?

I’ve got you!

These picture book lists are designed to improve your productivity by giving you a quick guide to prominent book features. Also included is a reference guide that gives you insight into WHY we look for these key teaching points when selecting picture books to use with students.

Each book has been meticulously studied by a team of SLPs and marked for 16 key teaching points that are important when choosing a book to use to develop stronger narrative skills in children. I’ve also identified narrative structure, age recommendation, and high-frequency sounds, AND MORE.

What's included in the themed book lists (100+ books and growing):

⭐️ Narrative Guide: evidence-based information and strategies

⭐️ binder spine and cover for easy organization

⭐️ Sticky Note Templates for each book

⭐️ Kindness books - 32

⭐️ Pirate books - 11

⭐️ Apple books - 23

⭐️ Leaf books - 20

⭐️ Community Helpers - 18
⭐️ Fire Safety (Fireman/Firefighters) - 11

⭐️ Bats & Spiders - 20

⭐️ Pumpkins - 18

⭐️ Snowmen - 16

Coming soon: Dinosaurs, Bugs, Zoo, Camping, Ocean, & MORE!

While I am a Speech-Language Pathologist and have that mindset when putting these book lists together, these narrative book lists are appropriate for any educator or parent to use.

We should be very strategic in the books we use for intervention – not just because they’re cute and popular on Instagram. I hope this will help you select books that are appropriate for your students.
