Practical Pre-School Magazine - December 2015

Resource Focus on Clickety Books!

'You do not have to be experienced in supporting children with speech, language and communication delay when you work with a Clickety Book title. These picture books are designed by experts to be a user-friendly tool for all.'

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 - October 2014

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."

Educationally Nutritious - May 2014

The best way I can sum up Clickety Books is by saying they are just like those 'hidden vegetable meals' your Mum used to make! They are educationally nutritious, yet without the obvious packaging. And they play an extremely vital role in the development of your child in all the important areas, such as speech, language and literacy - Absolutely fantastic!

I love this book! - February 2014

Elena (2 years and 10 months) chose Jake's Cakes after bath time, when I came back into the room she had picked it up and was telling the story. She had only heard it once and loves it. The pictures are detailed enough for her to want to study them, but clear enough to help her with the plot.

After only one reading she said "I love this book"!
