I have a two year old son who is speech delayed, but we have noticed that when we read books to him that have a repetative word throughout the book he tries to say that word.  For example he has a book that the first page says "Mistress Kind Mistress please give me a bone", then the second page says "a wheat bone, a treat bone".  My question is can anyone recommend any good books or authors for me to look at that would be like this that we can use that there is a common word throughout the book?

Try "

Hats for Sale".

"Where's my Mommy?"

Even though it's nonesense, he may like Dr. Seuss. There's a lot of rhyming and repetition.

I have a 3yo and 4yo who was speech delayed (has been in speech therapy for 1.5 years) and is on the autism spectrum and has ALWAYS loved books. We read a LOT and the repetitive ones are always the favorites.

We really like

Brown Bear, Brown Bear,

Are You My Mother?,

Click, Clack, Moo,

The Very Hungry Caterpillar,

Go, Dog, Go!,

Ten Apples Up on Top,

ChickaChicka Boom Boom,

Daddy Kisses,

Where Do Kisses Come From?

Also the Sandra Boynton Books are good - you might try The Going to Bed Book, Let's Dance Little Pookie!, What's Wrong Little Pookie?

You might try googling for teaching tips to go with the books - some teachers and speech therapists have websites with lesson plans and such available for specific books and often they are free downloads. The type you are looking for would be fairly common standards for the young ones. Hope that helps. :)
