Description

Gus loves to gulp yoghurt, but he is not the only one. Has he met his match?

This picture book targets the /g/ 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.

About the Series

Speech Bubbles 1

Supporting Speech Sound Development in Children

Speech Bubbles 1 is the first set in an exciting new series of picture books designed to be used by Speech Language Therapists/Pathologists, parents/caregivers, and teachers with children who have delayed or disordered speech sound development, children receiving speech therapy, or by those wanting to provide sound awareness activities for their children.

The set includes eleven picture books that each target a different speech sound within the story. The set is also accompanied by a user guide with notes for professionals and caregivers alike. Eleven different speech sounds have been chosen that are early developing sounds, or sounds commonly targeted in speech language therapy: /t/, /d/, /m/, /n/, /p/, /b/, /k/, /g/, /f/, /s/ and /s/ blends. With titles such as Who Bit My Tail?, Crocodiles Can’t Climb Trees and Ben the Bubble Bear, the stories are light and engaging, with colourful and fun pictures on every page to keep the child interested.

Perfect not just for therapy, but also for encouraging early sound awareness and development, Speech Bubbles 1 will create the perfect relaxed learning and practice environment for children beginning their journey into phonological awareness, speech sounds and their positions in words.

The books are available individually or as a complete set.
