The Best /R/ Books for Articulation

Oftentimes, selecting books to use in therapy can be time-consuming and productivity is lost. I want to create lists to make articulation therapy more efficient. Using a literacy-based approach to articulation therapy is essential in my therapy room. As you know, many of our kids have language goals as well. Books offer a great way to monitor the carry-over of fluent speech. I hope you find this list useful. There are SO MANY great /R/ books. I only am choosing books where the sound is of high frequency throughout; not just in the title. If you have pre-readers, practice a few high-frequency words from the book beforehand, then when you come to that word in the book, pause to let them say it.

Feel free to print the list at the bottom and take it with you to the library. Amazon affiliate links are included if you wish to add them to your personal library.

I hope this list helps you! If you have a favorite book to work on R, drop a comment below and I will update the list! I organized the list by initial, medial, final, and blends. There is a column on the right for you to add your own notes if needed. I like to write where I can locate the book. For instance, I will label them as “mine,” or “library” if I borrow theirs, etc. Also, if you are interested, I have additional ideas for working on R on my post, Articulation Road Map for the R Sound.
