Spot Goes to the Farm

By Eric Hill

Toddlers love baby animals. So does Spot! Join Spot as he visits his dad, working on the farm, and help Spot look for baby animals. Animal sounds pique Spot’s curiosity, and lift-the-flaps reveal who is underneath. After an adventurous search for baby animals, Spot finally finds a litter of kittens. This board book also features a full-color cover, with rounded-edge, sturdy pages that will stand the test of time.

This simple farm and dog book can be used in speech therapy to address prepositional phrases. It is also great for predicting and for interacting using lift flaps and animal sounds! Discover more of the speech and language teaching concepts for using Spot Goes to the Farm in speech therapy below:
