Why do I need these materials?

The Narrative Story Retell database, which is built into SALT software, includes story retell samples elicited from children in preschool through 6th grade using these materials. Samples elicited using the same protocol may be compared to age or grade-matched peers selected from this database. Comprehension questions, modeled on Bloom's Taxonomy, are included for each of the stories.

Why are there two copies of most of the story books?

The first book, Frog, Where Are You?, is a wordless picture book used both for providing the model and prompting for the child's narrative retell. The other three books contain words. One copy is used to read the story to the child. The other copy, which comes with all the words neatly covered, is used to prompt for the child's retell.
