    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.
