Why picture books?

Picture books cover a diverse range of topics, expose children to words and language they might not hear normally in conversation, and teach children how reading works (left to right, top to bottom). While picture books might be too hard for early readers to read by themselves, the books are not too hard to understand. Reading picture books with your child will inspire them to learn to read on their own, and experience the pleasure of reading.

These picture books were designed to accompany the LanguageLift program. However, children will also enjoy the books separately as they learn about the elements of a good story.
