At my latest visit to our public library, I started my hunt at the “New Books” section as usual. I came upon a new series of books that are designed by Child’s World to assist children in phonics development. Of course, I looked at them for assisting children in articulation development because each story features a different sound/letter such as “Pam’s Trip to the Park” or “Ben, Billy and the Birdhouse.” Carefully written to control word count, sentence length, and vocabulary, the books have entertaining stories about packing a lunch for the park and visiting the petting zoo or building a birdhouse from a box of wood with best friend Billy. Look for the entire series to find the sound that your child is working on and use the book for speech therapy or give it to the parents to reinforce therapy at home. Encourage you child to make his or her own book using their target sound and illustrate it.
