Miss Jennie would like to recommend these SLP-themed books to Dig Into Reading!
Dinosaur ROAR! by Paul & Henrietta Stickland
Recommended for ages 4 to 8 years
This is a fun rhyming book about opposites and dinosaurs! With bright illustrations and cartoon looking dinosaurs, this is a great story to share with younger kids! Not only does it talk about common opposites - clean, dirty, fast, slow; it also mentions some new vocabulary like lumpy, grumpy, spiky, fierce and meek! Not only a fun story, but a great way to help build vocabulary!
Tops and Bottoms by Janet Stevens
Recommended for ages 5 and up
I love this trickster tale where the little guy out smarts the big guy! Hare has a big family and wants to plant a garden, but his neighbor Bear has all the land. Hare comes up with an idea to not only get his garden, but to trick his big lazy neighbor. Hare lets Bear take half of whatever he grows - either the top half or the bottom half. As he harvests the crops, Hare carefully plots which half of the crop bear gets. When the carrots are ready, Bear gets the tops; and when the lettuce is ready, Bear gets the bottoms! Bear is finally fed up with Hare and demands both the tops and bottoms of the next crop; which Hare gladly give him - because the middle is the best part of the corn!
