I recently came across a fun rhyming rebus story book by author Shirley Nietzel titled The Jacket I Wear In The Snow. My son and I really enjoyed it and I felt it was a great resource in further developing reading, vocabulary, rhyme and repetition, sequence, comprehension and memorization skills for him. So, I looked up the author and was excited to find she has a series of rebus based stories I’ve decided to incorporate into our curriculum. Since a rebus uses pictures or symbols to represent a word, it’s a fun way to incorporate language concepts in story format. They work equally well for early readers or as picture/story puzzles that build comprehension and critical thinking for more advanced skills. The books generally target ages 4-8.

Rebus stories by Shirley Nietzel:

  • The Jacket I Wear In The Snow

  • Our Class Took A Trip To The Zoo
