When we speak, how often do we pay attention to the
parts of our body being activated to form words? 

You may well ask, what is
she talking about?

You will be surprised!

After reading this novel book, you will never take
speech for granted again.

 Phonobet describes the sounds that letters make alone, and
together with others. 

Full of beautiful noise that children will have fun
experimenting with, added to the stunning design, colour and characters that
entertain on the page while children learn, I know of no other book like this.


 It explains in a simple way, the complexities
of the English language. 

The different sections such as fricative: a type
of consonant made by the friction of breath in a narrow opening
, affricative
consonants, (explained in detail), and vowels, come with analogies that kids can
associate with.

At the end of the book, in the section Exploring
Your Voice
, eye-opening information will leave old and young, with
the urge to try every sound with focus on which areas of your face and body,
produce the delightful sounds of speech.

There are activities for children to try with word
sounds – voiceless and voiced, and a Treasure Hunt to find sounds.

I can’t write highly enough about this incredible
book. All I can add, is, look inside the exceptional covers, and you won’t
leave without it.

Great fun.
Lots of learning. Too good for words!
