Praise for Talking Tales: The Bright Red Tricycle

Charming and sweet, Erica Graham uses a story about a life cycle of a red tricycle to help children with the pronunciation of r and r blended sounds. This is a great way to practice sounds and kids will enjoy the stories as well. -Carole, Goodreads Review

Another teaching tool for parents. This time it’s help with speech. Well written and geared toward children who struggle with sounds, this book is amazing…Perfect book for parent/child reading time together. I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it needs to be in every home. -Melanie, Have you Heard My Book Review


Praise for Talking Tales: Sam’s Sticky Sucker

There can never be enough good educational books for children that gives them the opportunity to learn and at the same time, have fun.  I wish I could give this book more than 5 Stars but I can’t. Every child should have this book on their shelf. This would be a great gift for a child, grandparent, parent or even educators. Wonderful book! -Gayle, Goodreads Review

Educational and fun. Read it to my five year old, who loved it! –Lucia, Goodreads Review


Praise for Talking Tales: Puppy’s Bubble

An excellent way of helping children improve on their speech development, and the manner in which it is done is fun, interactive, and refreshingly original. –Readers’ Favorite

Grandkids love to “read” on my phone or tablet. Uncluttered illustrations allow them to focus. Repetition of words are good for younger ones as well as for beginning readers. I have a hard copy also at my house. A quality book! -Amazon Customer

The best part is that while the child is listening to the story and looking at the pages…they’re learning! My nephew kept looking at the pages saying, “puppy…pop”! Precious moments! -Keith Wheeler, Author

“Puppy’s Bubble” is a Talking Tales title, written by a speech pathologist to help parents encourage early speech development in their children. Emphasizing the sounds of words including “p”, “b”, “m”, “n”, “d”, and “h”, “Puppy’s Bubble” guides the attention of young readers through simple shaded colored pencil drawings and spare prose. Children are encouraged to make the sounds in the story, surprised by a “Boo!” or a bubble-fest. “Puppy’s Bubble” has tips for encouraging speech development as well as an appealing, illustrated story that children will love reading and interacting with. “Talking Tales: Puppy’s Bubble” is an excellent tool for parents to help promote their children’s speech development and sense of play. -Midwest Book Review
