The Speech Sound Series

Do goats belong in gardens? Gary thinks so! Gary is a Goat who loves to garden but his Garden is not going great. Gary finds ways to push through stereotypes to follow his passion all whilst helping children focus on their ‘G’ Sound. Gary the Goat is a fun story beautifully illustrated to take 2-5 year old’s on a speech sound journey.

The development of speech sounds is an important part of learning the ‘form’ of oral language. As children gain speaking skills, they use speech sounds and words more intently to express their needs. Children start to produce speech sounds at different ages, however typically developing children follow a similar sequence when developing consonant sounds (Shriberg, 1993, Berk 2013).

Nurturing and responsive learning environments are important for the development of strong speech and language skills (Harrison& McCloud, 2010). This includes frequent opportunities for children to share attention with adults, interact and hear language for a variety of different purposes. Reading with your child is the perfect learning environment.

The Speech Sounds Series books each have a specific sound focus, the alliteration and repetition make them a fun yet educational read for you and your little one. Your child will enjoy this story of a determined sloth following his dream. A fun story beautifully illustrated to take 2-5 year olds on a ‘S’ sound journey.
