'Wishy Washy' takes your young child on an adventure as they learn new words through life-like paintings, bright colours and an animal friend who guides them along the way. This book is more dynamic than other basic first-words or colour books because its pictures and words were strategically chosen to start with early developing phonemes (b,p,m,d,t) and to teach your child words they can easily say or approximate at a very young age (nine months to two years old) like 'puppy' vs 'elephant'. 'Wishy Washy' also provides tips for parents to help them encourage verbal approximations (acceptable substitutes). Plus, this engaging book comes with an attached wooden paintbrush and faux paint palette - a tactile, interactive tool that will provide your child with multi-sensory learning and help them better retain the information on each page.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Wishy Washy is more than just a first words book. It's a beautiful board book with words and colors that were strategically chosen by a speech pathologist to help infants and toddlers with speech development. I would recommend this to any parent."
-Dr. Abby Hendricks, MD, FAAP, Board Certified Pediatrician

"With its fun and whimsical text, Wishy Washy is the ideal first words and colors board book. Tabitha Paige's gentle, endearing, and beautifully illustrated watercolors compliment the story. Children will love reading and pointing during the chipmunk's artistic endeavor. The perfect book for any cozy nook."
-Robert Broder, award-winning picture book publisher, author, poet laureate

"Filled with beautiful images and first sounds, Wishy Washy will encourage you and your little one to engage together over stimulating words and colorful concepts!"
-Kellie Power, M.S., CCC-Speech-Language Pathologist

"Wishy Washy delivers carefully chosen text, word repetition, and playful watercolors to keep your reader engaged until the lighthearted ending, which will have your child giggling and asking you to read it again. Whether you are introducing new, simple words to your baby or helping your young child with sight words, Wishy Washy's thoughtful text and artwork will provide the perfect opportunity to capture your child's attention as they learn."
-Jenny Manca, MLS, Senior Youth Services Librarian, Allen Public Library

"Wishy Washy is the result of many years of persistent dedication by an artist, mother, and speech pathologist, who brings all her gifts to the table in the form of this delightful children's book. The thoughtfulness in content as well as artistry is evident, and makes for an instant classic that needs to be on every child's bookshelf!"
-Korie Herold, best-selling author of 10 books including As You Grow and Growing You
