This guide is intended for use by students in the ECE program. It includes information for finding children's picture books in the Library collection. Original as published 12/2019

Predictable Books

Predictable picture books are stories in which phrases or words are repeated, or the story has a pattern, or the story can be easily predicted.  These stories help children practice their reading skills, and they are great for storytime!
