A tongue twister is a phrase that is supposed to be difficult to articulate properly. Often times they take practice to say correctly. Tongue twisters are good practice for children as they learn to form words, phrases, and vowels. It's hard to say a tongue twister without a smile on your face. Each tongue twister in this book has it's own silly illustration. Kids will be entertained with these tongue twisters for hours.
In our modern, technological world full of computers and smart phones sometimes it’s a relief to take a break from typing or texting to fall back on an old and simple idea like tongue twisters. These are just strings of words that don’t easily go together soundwise that you have to try to say as fast as you can. The results can be hilarious.
Getting a group of kids together to try to say tongue twisters can provide them with great amusement. A competitive element can be introduced to enhance the enjoyment, and sometimes a young person who is no good at sports or school work will discover a hidden talent for tongue twisters that raises his or her self-esteem.
They also have more serious uses. For those whose native language is not English, they can provide excellent practice in pronouncing consonant and vowel sounds. Children with speech difficulties can also use them for practice when alone, and they may play a part in training young singers so that lyrics are heard more clearly.
And it’s not just kids who love tongue twisters. They also make excellent ice-breakers for work gatherings or seminars, and are more sedate than most drinking games for parties.
So the next time the power goes, or you find yourself stuck in a room with a bunch of kids or adults you have to keep entertained, why not get them all to have a go at saying some tongue twisters?
I originally picked this up for free during a Kindle promotion vs. its normal price of $1.99: you and your family will certainly get more than $1.99 of entertainment and laughter value out of this one.
