ZH Reading Paragraphs


Jacques Photography

Jacques was born in France, but grew up in Asia. He was a massage therapist who traveled the world. One of Jacques' favorite hobbies was to make collages. Whenever he went anywhere, he took tons of pictures. After taking the pictures, he would develop them in his garage, which he turned into a photo studio, and created collages from them.

Jacques had many people who admired his photographs. There were many people who offered him money for his pictures. It is not surprising either. He specialized in capturing breath-taking colors.

Jacques had a unique talent of capturing the azure blue color of the sky. He had inspiring pictures of the sunset that displayed the most beautiful rouge hues you can imagine. He had traveled all over Asia and taken pictures of landscapes, colorful performers, and captivating city skylines at night.

Indeed he was a talented photographer. He even spent his leisure time reading about different aspects of photography in order to improve his skills.

His next plan was to travel to Persia. He had read about the history of Persia and it was fascinating to him. He knew he would be able to take beautiful photographs there.

Jacques had a vision of photography that was higher than anyone I've ever met. If you ever get the chance to meet him and see his pictures, take it. You won't be sorry!

Vision of Treasure

Her parents named her Azure because she was born by the crystal blue ocean. Azure was proud of her name and wanted to do something adventurous. She had read about a hidden treasure located on a tiny Island in the Persian Gulf.

The legend was about an explosion that happened in the Gulf a few hundred years ago. The explosion created an underwater cave. If a person could get inside the cave, follow specific instructions, and make special measurements, they would find a secret treasure worth millions of dollars.

Azure had researched the Persian treasure for months and told her parents she knew the treasure was real. Her parents asked her how she knew. She told them she had seen the treasure in a vision.

Her parents and many other people told her that the treasure was fake and didn't exist.

"You might as well try to find a mirage," some said. There was a very strong collision between Azure's beliefs and other people's beliefs. But Azure felt that she would be able to find the treasure if she did exactly what she had read about. After all, she hadn't leisurely researched the treasure. She had spent many hours over six months to verify her findings.

She put on some beige makeup, her camouflage socks for good luck, packed her bags, and booked a flight to Persia. She would find the treasure and prove to people that it really existed.

Her parents asked her to contact them every day to let them know how the search was going and so they knew she was safe. Azure promised, got in the car, and headed for the airport. 




This list of functional words was professionally selected to be the most useful for a child or adult who has difficulty with producing the "ZH" sound.

We encourage you to use this list when practicing at home.

Doing home practice will help your child make much faster progress toward correct production.

Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) are only able to see students/clients 30-60 mins (or less) per week.

This is not enough time for your child to overcome an articulation disorder with the "ZH" sound. But with high caseloads...

...it's all SLPs can do.

There's only so much time in the day.

Every day that your child goes without practice it becomes more and more difficult to correct an "ZH" error because he/she continues to say it incorrectly.
