10 Best Wordless Picture Books for Speech and Language Therapy

  1. You forgot about Talk with Me! The Big Book of Exclamations 2 for the birth to 3 kiddos :^)

  2. Elizabeth says:

    Snowman’s Story is a favorite of mine and perfect for this time of year 🙂 I “read” it with a second grader today and it was a hit!

  3. Genesis says:

    I found that using “The Farmer and the Clown” by Marla Fraser during a circus theme we had worked really well for multiple ages!

  4. Christina says:

    I love the Jack the dog series by Pat Shores

  5. Hillary says:

    Goodnight Gorilla, a great resource to elicit language samples.

  6. Victoria says:

    Oh no It looks like the links to the different books are broken… only shows the numbers 1-10. I will check back to see if this changes. Cheers

  7. Sarah Worcester says:

    This showed up in my pin feed today, so as long as it is still circulating I thought I would add my faves:
    Pancakes for Breakfast

  8. Kirsten says:

    Un-Brella by Scott E. Franson is also a great wordless book.

  9. Brandi says:

    Hello – New to your page! I am trying to find new materials to use with my son (age 6) who has receptive/expressive language disorder! How are these books meant to be used?? By making up our own stories? Describing the pictures? Thank you for your help! 🙂

  10. Sara says:

    Flotsam is my favorite!

  11. Teri Peterson says:

    Someday you should consider creating a list that is more specific in terms of an age range. Something specific for birth to three and then 3 up because I think that changes things.

  12. Debra Brown says:

    The Toad and The Frog series has several wordless books, and the Good Dog, Carl series are wordless. Fabulous story content with fabulous, descriptive illustrations!

  13. Pat says:

    Alexandra Day wrote a series of wordless books centered around a dog named Carl. The first is titled “Good Dog, Carl”.

  14. Alyssa says:

    I love Red Sled and I Got It! and Time Flies

  15. Sharon says:

    The Angel and The Soldier Boy is a must have for wordless books. I also love Pancakes for Breakfast, mentioned above. Peter Spier’s RAIN is fabulous! He also did Noah’s Ark and Circus. The Lion and the Mouse by Jerry Pinkney is splendid, also mentioned above. The great thing about wordless books is a child typically looks at you like, “Wait! What do I do???” After narrating the first page or two, I allow them to take over and they typically love the experience and feel accomplished for telling the story themselves.
