Book Reviews

Hello and welcome to this issue of The Language Dispatch

Book Reviews

Over the past 2 months, I have discovered a series of new and not so new children's books. I have used them all as language therapy texts. I've written reviews for several of the books.

Some of the older books, such as Sniff Snuff Snap and The Deep can be considered classics, whereas others, such as The Boy and The Toy and Night School are recent releases. What connects them is that they are all excellent books to engage children in shared reading, language learning activities.
