Party Animals! is read-aloud fun and perfect for helping little ears tune into 21 essential English sounds. Therapists, educators, and parents, will also love this book to help their students and children with skills such as initial sound identification and articulation.
Party Animals! is first and foremost fun to read! This read-aloud book of playfully illustrated poems features an energetic array of animals, each seizing the day with an adventure. Inspired by the author's experience as a Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist, Party Animals! is a collection of 21 alliterative animal adventure poems. The poems are designed to highlight each speech sound through a LOT of repetition – the best way to learn!
For children, Party Animals! offers captivating characters, a multitude of settings, and a variety of mini-narratives. The animal characters were carefully chosen to be interesting enough for older children, but with words that are easy enough to be encouraging for children with emerging speech skills and/or speech sound production difficulties. The back of the book equips everyday readers with information about speech sounds, such as:
  • How the sounds are made
  • What ages we might expect kids to say specific sounds
  • Ideas to reinforce speech sounds
  • How to use the book to support language and literacy development
The book aims to make some Speech-Language Pathologist knowledge accessible to parents, grandparents, teachers, early childhood educators, daycare and nursery staff, and librarians.
