    Steven is having a birthday party, but it’s a long journey to the party. Will me make it in time, and in one piece?

    This picture book targets /s/ blends, 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.
