Noodle loves to jump in muddy puddles, and his friends don’t understand. Will he ever make a friend who accepts him?
This picture book targets the /n/ sound, and is part of Speech Bubbles 1, a series of picture books that target specific speech sounds within the story.
The series can be used for children receiving speech therapy, for children who have a speech sound delay/disorder, or simply as an activity for children’s speech sound development and/or phonological awareness. They are ideal for use by parents, teachers or caregivers.
Bright pictures and a fun story create an engaging activity perfect for sound awareness.
Please see other titles in the series for stories targeting other speech sounds.
