Abstract

The book A Trip to the Land of Funny Animals: Oral Motor and Myofunctional Exercises for Toddlers by Hilit Brown (illustrated by Karin Berenshtein) is reviewed by a Certified Orofacial Myologist®. The review lists several strengths and weaknesses of the book and concludes that it may be a useful addition to a therapist's "toolbox." Parents are cautioned to work with a speech therapist before implementing the exercises for further instruction and guidance. In addition, the activities are more appropriate for children closer to the age of 4 years rather than toddlers (ages 1–3).
