I was looking on your website for some of your old posts, specifically “Turkey Turkey what do you see?” But couldn’t find it. Can you re-post it? Or tell me where I can find it. Thank you!

    Hi Katie,
    I am an SLP working in a pediatric clinic. I work with toddlers and preschoolers and I was wondering if your book, “Daddy, Daddy, Who do you see?” is available to print. If it is still unavailable, is it possible to e-mail it to me? I really appreciate it. Thank you in advance.
