If your child is working on producing the /D/ sound appropriately, then reading books with this sound 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 /D/ sound in all target words. Remind your child that he needs to lift his tongue behind his front teeth for the /D/ sound. Below are five /D/ sound books bombarded with the sound to help improve your child’s articulation skills.
