I absolutely adore well-written and carefully illustrated picture books. The Picture Book Talk lessons are intended to accompany an adult reading the book aloud to children. They are not meant as written assignments for children to complete without guidance. The Wait For It... lessons might complement a comprehensive fluency therapy program. Please leave feedback so that I can design more effective lessons.

I'm a licensed, certified, pediatric Speech Language Pathologist who has collaborated with many school-based personnel in the past 34 years. In my opinion, the most important lessons children can learn are 1.) talking is fun and 2.) what they say matters.
