Product Description

From the Publisher

Are you ready for a unique teaching tool? Written by an experienced speech-language pathologist, these uproarious stories and engaging illustrations are certain to keep everyone laughing. "Ready for R" includes colour coded "R" word lists, fun and easy teaching tips, along with silly stories that will make students want to keep practicing. "Ready for R" is designed to spark speech, language and literacy development, inspire story-telling and encourage ESL students.

Praise for Ready for R
For nearly four decades I have been teaching children to articulate the sound r, using all the materials available. This book is different, and a very welcome change. It is fun! In one book you have word lists, reading, picture description, little gems of information, and questions to ponder, all presented in the format of original, whimsical poems and wonderful brightly-coloured illustrations. I recommend it highly.

Format: Paperback
This fun book is filled with entertaining and quirky illustrations to accompany the text designed to assist those many children, adults and ESL speakers who have difficulty with the letter "R." The text is amusing and carefully constructed to progress through the different levels of difficulty in pronunciation. While wonderfully useful for assisting parents, teachers and professionals in the speech language field, it is an entertaining book it its own right!
