With technology being used to help children learn new skills, LeapFrog have the LeapReader Junior to help your child with their first steps to reading.
A love of books starts long before children can read, and its benefits can last a lifetime. Using the same touch technology as the LeapReader Reading System, the LeapReader Junior book pal is designed to encourage toddlers’ natural desire to explore.
Parents can download audio for up to five books for the book pal, and each LeapReader Junior board book introduces reading basics or different preschool skills—such as letters, numbers and early vocabulary—through 24 playful activities and more than 150 audio responses.
Open-ended questions and fun sound effects encourage children to take charge, as they touch any part of any page to bring words, pictures or activities to life. And the book pal can learn a child’s name to make getting ready to read a personal experience!
After their child has played, parents can connect the book pal to the free, online LeapFrog Learning Path to see their child’s progress and get printable activities to expand the learning fun!
The full LeapReader Learn to Read System library features more than 80 interactive books, puzzles, maps and more
What’s in the Box?
The box contains the LeapReader Junior book pal, a sampler board book (the audio pre-loaded for you), a USB cable and a user guide.
A Closer Look at the Pal
The LeapReader Junior pal reads aloud each page, and each picture has its own sound too. The pal is small enough for a child to hold in his or her hands, but not so small that there is a risk of swallowing it!
The pal can hold up to five books, and then if you want to change them you have to connect the pal to your computer and upload the books – it’s very quick and easy though.
The LeapFrog LeapReader Junior is appropriate for Ages 12 Months to 3 Years and will make an excellent addition to your child’s learning.
The LeadReader Junior pal is around £25, and the books are around £9.99, however always look around as the books can often be found for under £5 online, and with 80 to choose from there should be something to help your child learn. You can also choose between a green pal or a violet one.
