A veritable visual and auditory wonderland.

Close your teeth and smile!
This app is so creative, and uses engaging and charming exercises to isolate the S sound at the beginning, middle, and ends of words. The “show and tell” song is curiously catchy…even for adults. There are exercises that also engage the young mind in ways that affect speech, such as tracing with both hands. Many subtle details make this a thoughtful app!

Engaging!
This beautifully created app left my 7 year old daughter wanting to play for hours! The characters are adorable and live in a land of their own. The journey Theo makes throughout the app teaches the placement of /s/ in all parts of the word. Would recommend to others.

Fun and Creative
As owners of a pre-school we are constantly on the lookout for new tools to engage our students. Junganew is a fun and creative way for kids to explore the world of sounds. The storyline and graphics are engaging and there are highly interactive elements to help facilitate learning. Junganew explores the “S” sound in-depth and Theo is there the whole way to guide you through. Highly recommended!

Great app! The story is engaging for little kids to learn the sound of /s/ in all positions of the word. It even includes s blends. My students love the “mirror” for visual and auditory feedback. Love that there are different activities which include language to elicit words with target sounds. Great addition to my articulation app library.

This is a great book for elementary students developing and refining their speech sounds! The characters and illustrations are inviting, fresh and unique! The stories are arranged in a very useful format – ideal for a school setting or practice at home.

“Junganew” is a unique speech therapy resource for parents and professionals. Ms. Giordano has combined whimsical characters into stories with engaging artwork that will hold a child’s attention as they practice target speech sounds, either during therapy sessions or at home for carryover and integration of new skills. “Junganew” begins with some gross motor movement exercises as a warm-up, and then rolls into stories that contain sound stimulation opportunities at the syllable, word and sentence level. She even includes characters that need help with new sounds, which provides the reader and child an opportunity to hear the substitutions (error sounds) and then the space for practice of the target sound. A wonderful addition to any library!

The whimsical characters in Junganew, A Herd of Sounds, help engage the students and keep them interested while learning the proper way to pronounce certain sounds. It is fun and educational at the same time.
