Book Adaptations: Resources and Materials
A- A+

This is an updated version of a post originally authored by Dr. Robin Parker in 2013. We hope you find something of value in the resourcesBook Adaptations: Resources and Materials that were shared.


To integrate reading and writing into communication and language learning we need to have lots of books that are easily accessible. Books should be accessible physically as well as through content and interest. This holds true for ALL learners even those that don’t like books but do like…… wheels.  We have made literacy accessible for a young girl who only liked elevators, and a boy who only liked balls, and a young adult who liked Barney books but not much else.  It holds true for ALL disabilities and ALL levels of reading and writing.

Today, we share resources for making and using adapted books to make literacy more accessible. Check out these awesome resources for making your own adapted books and for printing out already created adapted books and lessons.  We love early literacy adapted books as much as we love adapted chapter books. We have found time and time again, that adapted books are the foundation of opening up a world of literacy for ALL of our learners. Enjoy and feel free to share any other resources you use.

Do you have favorite places to visit for adapted books? We’d love to hear about them.

    I have used this list before, however a lot of the links can’t be found now. Do you have an updated list?
