The box contains Scout, a guide and five books.
A Closer Look
The idea behind the Read With Me Scout is to make reading fun, and that’s exactly what this delivers. There are 5 interactive books that deal with different skills. They are pattern, narrative, concept, rhyming and learn-about. Each one helps with that particular skill and makes it fun.
To choose which of the books you want to read with your child, just press the corresponding button on Scout’s collar.
When you want to turn the page of the book, you just give Scout a little pat on the head.
There are also a number of other ways to interact with Scout. If you press his right paw you hear learning songs, if you squeeze his left paw he will respond to you. If you pet him on his back you can answer questions, and if you give him a kiss on his cheek you will hear various friendship phrases.
There is also an option to listen to 8 minutes of lullabies to help your child go to sleep.
Once again LeapFrog have developed an interactive learning toy that both teaches your child new skills but it also fun to play with an cuddle!
