  • Book It, Pt. 24: A Quick Trip to Ireland and the Land of Illusions

    I have spent a fair amount of time here complaining about winter, so it's a good time to let you know that I LOVE St. Patrick's Day, mostly because to me it is the beginning of spring. Also, I am Darn Well Irish (the MacSweeneys, one of them being my grandfather, hail from County Cork, Ireland). This is sort of a weird holiday to target ...

  • Book It, Pt. 23: Have You Had Any Snow Days?

    In my previous post, I mentioned the quiet winter we have had in the northeast, and how I don't mind it at all! However, it's always nice to have a ''snow day'' school cancellation to let you catch up on work (or relaxation). Snow Day, by Patricia Lakin and Scott Nash, is a cute little picture book in which a group of kids with the ...

  • An Online Discovery!

    Thanksgiving is now over, and we'll soon be heading toward winter holidays! Today I want to share a subscription website that I am thankful for having rediscovered. I had access to it a few years ago, but it has really improved and I now have more students who can benefit. The website is http://www.new-2-you.com Each week, there is a ...

  • Book It, Part 8: More Resources to Support Using Picture Books in Therapy

    When I first started to become interested in using picture books as contexts for intervention in my public school SLP position, I was really happy to find Books are for Talking Too, by Jane Gebers. It was clearly just the resource I was looking for at the time - a guide specific to SLPs detailing the power of using picture books. Many great ...
