Fall Books for Language Development
Books are my favorite way for parents and/or caregivers to work on language skills at home. Reading with your child can easily be incorporated into your daily routine. Language skills that can be addressed while you read with your child include vocabulary, adjectives, wh-question (‘what’, ‘who’, ‘where’, ‘when’, and ‘why’), sequencing, and syntax. Below is a list I complied of my favorite fall books for language development.
Let it Fall by Maryann Cocca-Leffler
