Customer Reviews

"Every Speech-Language Pathologist needs to have this book!  I will share it with all of my speech students and fellow professionals."  - Christine Sumimoto, Speech-Language Pathologist, Kaneohe, Hawaii

"Your book came today...I love it!  It contains more information about the treatment of communication disorders than I thought it would have, but in a simplistic manner that kids can understand and enjoy.  I especially liked the discussion questions at the back of the book.  This book would greatly benefit regular classroom teachers, special education teachers, and speech-language pathologists who are trying to explain communication disorders and their treatment to elementary school-aged children."  - Kalleen Stoddard, M.S. CCC-SLP - SLP and mother of 2, Corvallis, Oregon

"This book should be read to all kindergarten and first-grade regular ed classes.  The teachers, as well as the children, would learn what Speech Pathologists actually do.  Finally, a simple, well-written and beautifully illustrated story explaining semantic, syntactic, phonological, pragmatic language and voice disorders.  Thank you." - Sheri Rosenthal, M.A., CCC-SLP
