    Does anyone use these ever?

    For SLPs, they're excellent because the child has to communicate what's happening using good phonology, syntax, morphology, pragmatics, common sense, etc. Also, various kids can be assigned a different character in the book & talk to each othe according to what's happening, so it's like reader's theatre. I know general ed teachers can have the child do the above or write a story out. I've Googled a list of these kinds of books because I want to start a collection. This weekend, I bought the book Pancakes for Breakfast by Tomie DePaola, which is the only thing I could find at the time.

    Are there any picture books you really recommend over others & what activities/lessons do you do w/ them?

    I'm going to eventually get: The Box, One Frog Too Many, & Tuesday, which is good for older kids.

    I've used a few by David Weisner, but Tuesday is my favorite. I used it with 4th and 5th grade as a "read-aloud," except the students would have their notebooks out and write a sentence or two for each page (I showed it to them once before they wrote, so they knew where the story was going). I would use it in either by voice or word choice units, so students could focus on those traits, rather than the ideas part.

    A LOT of David Wiesner books! Tuesday is my favorite! He has a bunch of caldecott books with no words and VERY vivid pictures. He's fantastic. Flotsam is my second favorite. I believe Sector 7 is also wordless. Definitely check his out.
