Try out this collection of original tongue twisters. How fast can you say them?

These tongue twisters rely on alliteration and rhyme to trip you up, but it is lots of fun to try! Some of the short ones were deceptively difficult to say aloud, but those were the ones I liked the best. My favourite was about Betsy and her biscuits. These must be read aloud, and repeated! I got rather tangled in most of them after about the second repeat, but some of them I didn’t even get right the first time, much to the amusement of my kids. Much laughter was to be had trying these.

There is one tongue twister presented per page in large, solid text. Simple yet bold illustrations accompany each tongue twister on the opposing page. These pictures are quite lovely and suit the text well. My favourite picture was of Karen and her cartwheeling kitten.

Tongue Twisters for Girls is really suitable for all age groups, though primary school children will probably get the most joy from it! Who can say each one fast three times without stumbling in your house?
