I absolutely adore Jan Brett stories. The illustrations, vocabulary, and story make them top notch. Not surprisingly, I have developed many Speech Therapy Book Companions to go with her books. I decided a few months ago that I wanted to update my book companions, beginning with hers. But before I did this massive overhaul, I had one new companion that
