This big resource, which is a book companion for 'Pancakes for Breakfast', is for teaching and practicing pragmatics, or the understanding of feelings, motivation, action through awareness of environmental, and facial cues by using a wordless picture book. Wordless picture books are often used for pragmatics in speech therapy for developing narratives and examining visual cues in storylines!
