Abstract

Proposes using wordless picture books in conjunction with Roach Van Allen's Language Experience Approach as a method for teaching pre-emergent and at-risk readers.

The author describes the developmental and artistic considerations taken during the creation of the book as well as potential classroom applications for its use.
