Reviews section:


  • Ms. Kriston has done a magnificent job of blending phonemic and prosodic features of language. Read the book aloud and you realize that is has a wonderful meter that children will be able to use to repeat the story to themselves. The concept of generating stories around phonological processes is unique and beneficial to parents and children. Dr. and Mrs. Larry Turton (Dr. Turton is a well-respected expert in articulation and phonology and a professor emeritus from Indiana University of Pennsylvania).
  • Goats, boats, and flying couches! Children will love this fun and whimsical story and enjoy playing with the flashcards. Engaging pictures, challenging words, and important consonant sounds makes this book highly effective for progressing children's speech.

Great Book

My daughter loves Go By Goat! She loves the flashcards that go along with it. She repeats quite a few words while I read it to her. It is a very cute book!

An excerpt from Friday April 4, 2014

Dr. Roberson introduced other books produced by her publishing company, Read With Me! Press, which support language and literacy development. Speech therapists will especially appreciate the stories in their “Word Menders” series, which target specific phonological processes.

You don’t need to be a speech therapist or to understand those processes to read these stories to children. Elizabeth Redhead Kriston’s Go By Goat, charmingly illustrated by Gary Morgan, will help children listen to and pronounce the final consonants in words.  Since this sound often disappears when some of my younger students speak, I’ll be putting the book to good use.
