Our Favorite Sound-Loaded Picture Books

family reading picture book

Is your child working on a certain sound in speech therapy? One simple, effective, and proven way to increase speech therapy progress at home is by reading books together!

When reading together, take the opportunity to focus on your child’s speech through sound-loaded picture books. This is an engaging way to provide your child with multiple opportunities to hear and practice their sound.

Below is a list of some of my favorite sound-loaded picture books for common speech sounds your child may be working on!
