If you’re child is working on producing the /R/ sound appropriately, then reading books with these sounds is a great activity to do together. Reading books with your child’s target sound will help give him many good models of the sound (a great auditory bombardment activity). When you’re reading the book to your child, please make sure to emphasize the /R/ sound in all target words. These books contain many pre-vocalic /r/ and vocalic/r/ words. Below are five /R/ sound books bombarded with the sound to help improve your child’s articulation skills.
