Asher the thresher shark is very shy. Will it stop him from being a hero?
This picture book targets the /sh/ sound and is part of Speech Bubbles 2, 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.
Picture books are sold individually, or in a pack. There are currently two packs available – Speech Bubbles 1 and Speech Bubbles 2. Please see further titles in the series for stories targeting other speech sounds.
