This short professional development session has a dash of research followed by an example of  using Bagel in Love to engage kids in discussions about nonliteral language. Join us for this quick book share for lesson ideas to finish out your school year. 

The target audience for this session is early career school SLPs, but we welcome all to join in the fun. A professional development hours (PDH, formerly CMH) certificate for 0.5 hours will be emailed to registered participants and may be counted towards your certification maintenance.
