This fun book app version of the classic Dr. Seuss “Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?” by Oceanhouse Media has great opportunities for repetitive simplified approximations for early speech sounds: moo, bu (buzz), paw (pop), la -or- op (klop), e (eek), doo (cock-a-doodle-doo), whoo, a (rain), i (dibble), aw (drop), oo oo (choo choo), ih (tick), aw (tock), naw (knock), um (gum), pih -or- ip (pip), boo (boom). And imitation of lip positions for some of the harder words: lip rounding for the horn blowing, lip licking for cat slurping, lip smacking for fish kiss.
The app isn’t free but is definitely worth it with all the sound effects, ability to go directly to any page within the book and option to use in-app recording to record the child (currently $3.99, iOS Universal – works on iPad, iPhone or iTouch, https://appsto.re/us/Ic-0z.i).
*** Update: 5/8/20: That older app is no longer for sale in the App Store. This enhanced version replaced it: Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? by Oceanhouse Media, https://apps.apple.com/us/app/mr-brown-can-moo-can-you/id1249496615, currently $5.99, iOS Universal ***
One of my all time faves in OMazing Kids speech therapy!
