Environmental Noises

Our Environmental Noises book is the perfect book to get your children commenting, imitating, and lots more!  It is ideal for ages 0 months and up.  It features motivating videos including birds chirping, helicopter’s flying, water boiling, and much more!  Since many children are visual and auditory learners, we would often spend hours searching the Internet for the perfect images and videos depicting the vocabulary we were targeting in our speech therapy sessions.  It ended up being so time-consuming that we decided to make it easier for families and therapists by creating this interactive book. 
In terms of speech and language milestones, at around 12 months, your children will have about 5-10 single words.  They will also start producing sound effects such as “Tweet Tweet!” to sound like a bird.  By 2 years of age, your child will have about 50-100 words. At this point they will also start combining words, so they may comment on the book by saying "Plane Flying".  You can even start teaching concepts such as past tense.  And at 3 years and beyond, your children will start producing 3-4 word sentences such as “I hear a truck”.  The grammatically appropriate sentences are written below each picture. You can even add your own spin on things by adding an additional phrase such as a prepositional phrase like "I hear a helicopter.  It's in the sky!” For any age, you can target initiating and answering "wh" questions such as, "What do you hear?" and adjectives such as "Wow it's loud!”  We also use the book with older children to target reading, writing, grammar, and punctuation.
