Storytelling using pictures

A picture's worth a thousand words, which is why they're a great tool for helping to tell stories. Use the signs you know to explain what's happening in your child's favourite picture books.

Storytelling using pictures

See how he uses facial expressions to show that the dog was feeling hungry and that mum was angry.
