Let's Talk About Books: Week 2 {linky party}

Last week, I linked up with Deanna Jump and her first week of Let's Talk About Books.  You can read that post here and learn some more about My Truck is Stuck.  She is hosting another one this week, and you can read all of the posts here.  This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.  

This week's book is Duck on a Bike by David Shannon, another of my students' favorites.

If you're interested in buying the book, you can find it here:

There is a duck who lives on a farm.  He decides to ride a boy's bike around the farm and visit all of the animals.  However, all of the animals think he is silly to be riding a bike.  At the end, a group of kids ride by in their bikes and leave them outside.  Finally, all of the animals decide to ride the kids' bikes, just like the duck!

How to Use:
I use this book in my speech room for several things:

  • final consonant deletion (especially /k/)
  • predicting/inferencing
  • story retell
  • basic spatial concepts 
  • silly/ not silly (early pragmatics)

Age Group:
I would use this book mostly with preschoolers.  However, I believe some elementary school students would enjoy it as well.  It has a simple story line that also has a bit of a pattern.  This makes it a great book for those younger students to enjoy and follow along with.  I also use it with elementary students who may be working on final consonant deletion or any speech sound and need practice reading it aloud. 

It truly is a great book.  It happened to be one of the first books I ever purchased for my students, but I am so glad I did.  Even my dog likes to read it ;) 

Do you think your students would like this book?
