Perfect for reading aloud, this spare, charming picture book about a day in the life of a pill bug in suburbia is also about an unusual friendship. Hank is a pill bug with a busy life—for a pill bug, that is. His daily routine involves nibbling a dead leaf, climbing up a long stick, avoiding a skateboarder, and playing pretend with his best friend, a human girl named Amelia, in her backyard. And when day is done, Hank likes nothing better than returning home to his cozy rock.
This adorable spring book can be used in speech therapy to address sequencing. It is also great for illustration study and targeting adjectives and verbs! Discover more of the speech and language teaching concepts for using Hank’s Big Day in speech therapy below:
