    Abstract

    In my dissertation I studied speech-language development in the preschool period. I focused on using a text-free picture book as a means of promoting speech-language development. In the theoretical part, I defined language and speech and the factors and milestones of speech development. I described how we promote speech and language development and presented the development of storytelling of preschool children. I explained what a picture book is, writing the characteristics of literary works. I presented a text-free picture book in more detail and described the importance of use, criteria for choosing a quality picture book and gave some examples of text-free picture book. In the empirical part, I presented the results of a research in which I found out how a text-free picture book helps the educator to promote speech and language development in preschool children. With a questionnaire filled out by 50 educators currently working in the second age group in one of the public kindergartens in Slovenia, I found that all participants use a text-free picture book and that they believe that a text-free picture book is a means of stimulating speech -language development. In addition, they use the text-free picture book to develop children's abilities and skills in other areas as well.
