The Big Book of Exclamations
By: Teri Kaminski-Peterson, M.S., CCC-SLP
Â Â Â Before we begin, go to chatterboxbooks.com or Amazon.com, put this book in your cart, now buy itâ€¦ALRIGHT, WEâ€™RE SET! (Youâ€™ll thank me by the end of this post;]). Seriously though, this was one of the best finds Iâ€™ve ever found. My kids LOVE this book!! This book is written by an SLP (score!) and covers expressive exclamations in early language development. It doesnâ€™t follow a story line but it doesnâ€™t need to. Use your SLP brain to come up with gestures, prompts, and words to use while reading. Â Also, the author gives ways to interact with your clients/kids at the bottom of each page to increase language opportunities. I LOVE THAT! The book takes you along a family’s day of waking up, eating breakfast, going to the park, taking a bath, and going to bed. Â Each page offers endless opportunities of interaction. So if you canâ€™t tell yetâ€¦I HIGHLY recommend this book! My kiddos laugh and laugh while we read it and I hear new words all the time from my littlesÂ with this book. Â My client’s parents equally love it and purchase it when I share it with them.
