Books for Speech Sounds – ssss

Picture books are a great way for both therapists and parents to help children with some articulation goals.

Today we have compiled a great list of books for working on the s sound both in initial and end word position.  We have chosen repetitive books with lots of opportunity for the preschooler to practice the chosen sound.

This can be used as a quick reference guide with the words listed for practice in each book.
