I read at least one of the books from the Clickety range each day with the children because they are a joy to read. The books are so colourful and the children think that the illustrations are funny.
Michael Jones, Early Years Consultant and author:
"I bought a selection of your books and CDs from the Early Years range, while at a conference in Lincoln. My plan was to use them to recommend to settings I work in and on training courses. I made the mistake of lending them to my daughter, who is a nursery teacher, to 'road test' them on my grandchildren. They were so popular, I have no chance of getting them back!

The Clickety Books are a favourite with Cuddles Day Nursery in Canford Heath, Poole, Dorset. "The best thing about the books is that they have been written and designed by a speech therapist," says manager Fran Morgan. "They introduce lots of new words and bring in funny words too. It's obvious that somebody has written the books for a purpose and not just to entertain."

Practical Pre-School Gold Award for Early Soundplay books: Chatty Bat, Clip Clop's Picnic and Chatty Bat
We're delighted to win another Gold Award! Here's what the testers said about the Early soundplay set of books, Chatty Bat, Clip Clop's Picnic and Jake's Cakes:
"The children really enjoyed these books. These colourful books use playful illustrations and repetitive words and phrases to introduce the child to both individual word sounds and sound sequences. This is an important part of a child's speech development. The humour in the book was appropriate for younger children and the book is in a child-friendly print. The story is simple and engaging."
