Our Favorite Spring Picture Books for Speech Therapy – Episode 43


It’s hard to believe, but spring is just around the corner, which means it’s time to think about incorporating spring picture books into your rotation. With the changing of seasons, plants and trees starting to bloom, and more color being brought to life, spring picture books can create happiness and joy in the eyes of our readers. The seasonal changes are the exact topic we chose to focus on with the books we’re covering today. So, in today’s episode, we’re sharing our favorite spring picture books for speech therapy and how they can be utilized in your sessions. 

While we mainly try to find books that are complete episodes, the majority of the spring picture books we chose were either descriptive or action sequences. There is a lot of value in each of these types of books, especially as we analyze the different concepts within each. Not only do these spring picture books have great themes and messages, but they all encompass our key teaching points, which is a way for us to measure the value of a book to be used in speech therapy sessions. So fill your bookcases with our favorite spring picture books for speech therapy and watch your student’s language bloom! 

Topics Discussed:

  • A list of our favorite spring picture books to use during your speech therapy sessions
  • Why descriptive and action sequences add value to your sessions just as much as complete episodes do
  • Which key teaching points are included in our list of spring picture books
  • Why some books are our personal favorites, and a book based on a true story that can be used in a variety of ways
