The Entire World of R™ Book of Stories, by Sheila McGovern and Christine Ristuccia, offers an advanced level articulation tool for dealing with the difficult /r/ phoneme.
The book is the capstone to The Entire World of R™ Phonological Strategy that is centered on the 21 types of /r/, the basic phonological components of the /r/ phoneme. This book focuses on reading, structured conversation and conversational speech level activities whereas, the previously released The Entire World of R™ Instructional Workbook focused on more basic articulation practice ranging from isolation to sentence level activities.
The 150+ page book is comprised of 63 phonologically pure /r/
stories. All 21 types of /r/ are represented by 3 different stories, each with an accompanying illustration. Each chapter focuses on a distinct variation of /r/; Initial /r/, /ar/, /or/, /ear/, /ire/, /air/, /er/ & /rl/. All are further separated by initial, medial and final word positions.
The unique aspect of this tool is that only the target /r/ phoneme appears in each story. No other /r/ words are present to confuse and frustrate your students. Each story has an average of 8 target words that are highlighted for easy reference. Comprehension questions are included with every story.
The workbook is designed for therapists that work with articulation errors. It is also appropriate for comprehension and language therapy. These stories are a great way to practice structured conversation and to probe for possible graduation from speech.
