Leap Frog ~ Ready, Set, Read & Write Giveaway with #LeapReader





















This is Little M’s last year of preschool and since we have chosen to homeschool I will be teaching him to read and write. While we do have a curriculum I was looking for something that would make learning to read and write fun. Around this same time MomSelect and Leap Frog asked if we could host a party and review the LeapReader and I gladly said yes.



Our kit included everything we needed to really test out the LeapReader. Little M was excited to show it to everyone and right away started using it. The LeapReader is easy to use and requires no batteries! To charge your LeapRead just plug it into the USB drive and let it charges. This is also the way you upload books so that the LeapReader pin contains the programs for the books.

There are so many things you can do with just one book. You can have the book read to you, listen to music and play a trivia game.  Leap Frog is always adding to their audio books and currently there are over 150+ books to choose from. 



















Little M thinks the Leap Read is pure entertainment and has no clue how much it teaches him. I have noticed that he is more imaginative and writes better after playing with the LeapReader. The other aspect of the LeapReader that I like is how it teaches listening skills. This skill is something Little M needs work on and to use the LeapReader you have to follow directions.

I think what speaks most highly about the LeapReader is that my son has learned that learning to read and write can be fun. Also as his teacher I realize that boys especially, like video games and the LeapReader makes reading and writing as fun as playing a video game. The best part is that he can sit by himself and do this quietly while I work on something else. As a homeschooling mom this is great since we spend most of our day with one on one interaction. 
























Since Christmas is not too far away we thought we would give away a LeapReader to one of you. I really think this is the perfect gift for preschoolers learning to read and write!

    All my little ones loved the Dog that plays different songs and parts of the body when you touch different parts. My older ones loved the leap pad's that came out many, many moons ago, as they are mid-teens already.

  11. We love the LeapFrog Tag! My daughter has a couple books and whenever I am busy, she pulls them out and "reads" for a little while. It's a great way for her to get in some reading time when I am doing dishes. She sits at the table and asks me what certain words means. It's a great tool to keep her learning when I have my hands full.
