Even gifted children benefit from time with picture books, learning how to get the most out of what they read. Decoding the information in picture books can teach a child not only to read but also to interpret and understand. Teachers for grades 3 through 12 often use picture books to teach students how to deepen and augment their comprehension as well as expressive language skills.
