Reading stories and looking at picture books together is one of the best ways in which you can support children's spoken and written language development.

We have created two award winning series of books that children love! They are also expertly crafted to support children's speech, language and literacy development.

Both series are accompanied by wonderful audio which provides additional listening opportunities and supports children who want to read along with the stories.

Our award winning Early Soundplay Soundplay series is ideal for children ages 1 to 5.

Children love sound play – it’s fun! Our Early Soundplay series is written by Sally Bates, a speech and language therapist, and this expertly crafted series provides multiple opportunities for focused listening to the full range of English speech sounds.

Children enjoy engaging in a wide variety of sound play and it helps develop their ability to recognise individual sounds in words. This is not only important for clear speech but also gives them a head start in phonics and learning to read and spell.

Children love repetition. It helps them build their knowledge and understanding of word meanings and story structure.

Sophie Thompson reads the Early Soundplay series with a voice and interpretation that is perfect for these stories.

Our multi-award winning Sound Steps series is full of delightfully humorous and quirky characters that are loved by the 4 to 7 age group.

These books are also carefully crafted focusing on specific sounds that help children consolidate their phonics work and provide support for learning a range of spelling patterns.

Children will laugh out loud and want to join in when they hear the in character introductions and lively readings provided by Ronni Ancona, the late Rik Mayall and Catherine Tate.

Hello parents and carers and welcome to Clickety Books.

"Clickety books - an essential for your child's collection!"


tt award 2011 prelit winnerClickety Books were created by Craig Green, the parent of a child with speech, language and communication difficulties. Inspired by the activities recommended by his son’s speech and language therapist, Craig wanted to elaborate and expand on these using his own creative writing skills. Craig knew just the person to illustrate the books and hence, Clickety Books were born.

In December 2011 we won the Talking Tots Toy Award 2011 for developing pre-literacy skills.

 

However these books are for ALL children, not just those with speech and language delay or difficulties. Talking Tots say:

"What blew us away was the reaction of the children in our Sparklers (3 – 5 year olds) class who generally don’t have speech & language difficulties. They howled with laughter at the funny antics of the characters, the wacky humour and most of all … they loved joining in the repetitive chants (at the top of their voices!)."

Have a look at the books here and help yourselves to our FREE resources or enjoy some short animations introducing the Clickety characters here. Enjoy the lively audio by celebrity narrators Ronni Ancona, Rik Mayall, Catherine Tate!

We hope that you and your children enjoy them too!
