Talking Tales: Sam’s Sticky Sucker
The alliteration in this book reminded me of Dr. Seuss style, which I love. As an early childhood educator for many years, I wish I'd had this book in my hands when some of my preschoolers were struggling with their "s" sounds and blends. It would have been an invaluable tool. And I love the way the author ends the book abruptly, as somewhat of a mystery for little ones to solve, even though the adult readers will know exactly what happened.
I highly recommend parents and caregivers grab this book for your preschooler if he or she is having trouble with "s" sounds. It helps to model the various sounds by showing the child where the tongue should be placed when creating the "s" sounds and blends, but this book would be a fun tool to reinforce and practice these skills with any child.
I highly recommend it!
