The popular Milo series is back- this time on an adventure to the park in an interactive storybook.  Milo and his friends, Melvin and Maggie, will keep any child interested in this book with interactive features on every page and the ability to record their own story.  Created by the licensed Speech-Language Pathologist that brought you five other language apps, to build storytelling and narrative skills.

Speech with Milo is focused on developing language skills in children.  The interactive story book allows children to build skills by recording their own story.  Your child has the option of reading and listening to the words that we provide as they play with the sounds and sights on each page.  Or, you may turn off all features so they can create their own story
