    This slideshow is a good orientation for people who want to see the connection between theory and practice when it comes to teaching critical thinking to learning-disabled children. I found it to be well-referenced and teeming with examples of ways to teach important skills within a trusted framework, including some sample sessions and even goals. To its credit, this is not a no-prep product like you would find on other sites. If you want cookie cutter activities, look elsewhere. If you want to understand how a picture book can be a systematic vehicle for meaningful language therapy, start with this. The added bonus for me was the list of selected picture book authors toward the end. This will save me some initial time and expense as I start to build my own picture book library.
