Abstract
This large print/braille book includes color illustrations on each page that depict the text. The Best for a Nest interactive storybook provides an opportunity for the learner to focus on many concepts: position of objects, prepositional phrases, and use of tactile symbols. The storyboard should be removed from the book so the child can use the included tactile symbol manipulatives to illustrate what is happening on each page of the book. The child may need assistance when first placing tactile symbols on the storyboard. It is anticipated that the child will need less assistance as he/she gains experience. Make this experience fun and meaningful for the child. Included with the book is a group of manipulatives: birds (4), nest (3), eggs (3), tree (1), branches (6), grass (1), cat (1). The manipulatives are tactile symbols that are designed to assist the child in better understanding the text. WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD — Small parts. Not intended for children ages 5 and under without adult supervision.
