Picture Books & Resources
Communication is a two way-process of receiving and expressing information involving speaking, listening and writing. Good communication skills help children become effective listeners and collaborators. Effective communication avoids misunderstandings, builds trust and healthy relationships. Non-verbal communication, what you don’t say, is just as important as what you do say. Picture books are perfect conversation starters and these books are no exception. They highlight different communication methods in positive and effective ways.
