by: Sarah Sitzmann, M.A., CCC-SLP
Looking for fun language and literacy books for your toddler or preschooler? Whether your indoors escaping the heat or outdoors reading books under the tree, adults and children can’t help but enjoy the repetitive text of Bill Martin Jr. books.
Bill Martin Jr. has a variety of books that incorporate repetitive text to aid in language and learning in a fun way! I often utilize his books in my speech-language therapy sessions because they target skills that are important for all early learners. These are a few of my favorite books by Bill Martin Jr. as well as some of the themes seen in the books.
