Perfect for toddlers and pre-school kids learning to listen and talk, the Shine Light books are more than just ordinary picture books. Don’t forget to grab a flashlight! Because these books will reveal “secrets” or hidden photos when you shine the light from your flashlight on the pages. Who lives in the apple tree? Shine a light behind the page and see...from worms wriggling among the roots to birds nesting high in the branches, the hidden wonders of this amazing habitat are revealed.

Have you seen this new resource for working on (or collecting data on) auditory discrimination that was recently published by my friend and colleague Kristine Ratliff? It includes colorful and engaging 228 minimal pair cards differing by sound feature. The minimal pair cards were designed using the Auditory Discrimination Hierarchy known as the Listening Ladder created by Dave Sindrey, M.Cl.Sc., LSLS Cert. AVT.
The hierarchy begins at level 1, with sounds differing by duration, intensity and pitch. It progresses by difficulty though ten steps, ending with discrimination of words with final consonants differing by place of articulation.
I downloaded my minimal pair cards on my iPad so they are easily accessible and it saves on ink and printing.
