    Speech Bubbles 2 is the second set in a series of picture books designed to be used by those working with children who have delayed or disordered speech sound development, children receiving speech therapy or those wanting to provide sound awareness activities for children. The set includes 12 beautifully illustrated storybooks, each targeting a different speech sound in different positions within words, and a user guide with notes on each individual story. Designed to be read aloud to the child in a therapy, classroom or home setting, the stories create a fun and engaging activity that can be returned to again and again.

    The full set includes:

    • Twelve bright and engaging stories targeting the following early developing sounds and sounds frequently targeted in speech therapy: /v/, /z/, /sh/, /ch/, /h/, /y/, /j/, /r/, /l/, /w/, /r/ blends and /l/ blends.
    • A user guide supporting the use of the stories, with individual notes on each.

    Perfect not just for therapy but also for encouraging early sound awareness and development, this is an engaging and invaluable resource for speech and language therapists and pathologists, parents and caregivers and teachers working with children aged 2– 8 years.
