Pictures books are excellent for all ages as they build on key reading skills such as inference. Do not be afraid of using picture books to improve reading skills and language skills.
'Making inferences in reading is a crucial skill that must be mastered for a reader to have real comprehension. Making inferences involves reading the text and recalling prior experiences that are similar to what you are reading. Then, you use context clues from the text to draw a logical conclusion about what might happen next.'
