When students read picture books they have more than one comprehensible input to help them expand their vocabulary. When students understand the stories, they are able to identify with characters, predict what may happen, and share out what they are reading about, thereby having added enjoyment of reading. When books are NOT bilingual (printed in both languages) they help the reader to build their own skill in negotiating the meaning of of words and ideas. I love when kids tell me what it is they liked about a certain story. I often ask kids who they identified with in the book.
