Trish is a teeny tiny fish. She dashes and rushes through the ocean with a swish, swash, swoosh, and a splish, splash, splosh!
The Early Soundplay stories are written by Sally Bates, a speech and language therapist. The stories are expertly crafted and designed to support children’s developing speech sound awareness and vocabulary knowledge. These foundation skills are key to children’s success with phonics, early reading and spelling.
The stories are packed with multiple repetitions of selected sounds and rhymes. Trish the Fish is full of sound play with a special focus on ‘sh’.
The simple, interactive storyline makes it easy for children to anticipate what happens next and then to join in when they hear the story again. This gives them lots of opportunities to hear and practise saying ‘sh’ words.
Children love repetition! It helps them build their knowledge and understanding of word meanings and story structure. We hope that you will enjoy this story again, again and again!
