The Best Books For Articulation
Articulation Books for speech therapy are fairly easy to find. It seems like I’m working on /S/ EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. However, I like to find books with a heavy load of specific sounds. Even if my students are not reading fluently, they can still recognize some simple words when we come to them in the text and I pause for them to use that word with their best S sound!
You can check out all of the articulation books for /S/ & /Z/ in my Amazon List (affiliate link). One of my favorite books is Caps For Sale for working on /S/. It is highly repetitive and is always a favorite with the kids. They actually request this one often. Another go-to is the “I Spy” series. You have to say the phrase “I spy…” over and over. I also love the added benefit of visual discrimination. These are in almost any library and almost any store I go to – I get most of mine from used bookstores.
The Fly Guy book series is very popular too. I love using it for my beginning readers. It has the boy’s name, “Buzz” in it frequently so it’s great for using when targeting /Z/.
Again, I always try to select articulation books that are not just “cute,” (like Splat books), but that have rich vocabulary or other literary aspects that I can touch on like Dr. DeSoto (wow, one of my all time favorites).
