Tuesday Treasures!

More treasures to share! This school library is an absolute treasure trove of great materials to stimulate language/vocabulary, grammar, and articulation.

Unfortunate, of course, that the library flooded but I am so pleased that it was moved into my classroom! Used to be so tiresome lugging a heavy bag of materials on Tuesdays. Now anything I need for therapy is within arms reach! So convenient... hope the library isn't moved back to the previous location after repairs.

Here are a couple of the school library picture books I've been using in my speech/language therapy sessions.

These pages are from A Child's First Dictionary, 1948.

Aren't the illustrations delightful? Love it!

Check out these illustrations from The Carousel Word Book, 1968.

Note how much the style changed in 20 years. You can definitely tell this book is from the late 60s.

Which is your favorite style of illustration?
