Welcome to Wild About Books Wednesday! Each Wednesday I share a book that can be used in speech or language therapy. If you’re a blogger, please consider linking up and sharing your ideas! Just use the picture below to link back to me.
I absolutely adore Kevin Henkes! He is one of my favorite authors of picture books. In undergrad, I scored tickets to watch him speak at the University of Kentucky. He was awesome! Fun fact: While his children eat breakfast, he reads aloud from a chapter book. They keep a list of books they’ve read together in their kitchen. By now, I’m sure their list includes hundreds of chapter books!
Henkes’ little mice often make their way into my speech room. I love Chester, Owen, Chrysanthemum, Wemberly, and especially Lilly! Today I want to focus on Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse.
