I love the eBooks that are available for the Leap Pad devices because they offer your child a way to interact with the stories. When I came across the Leap Frog Learn to Read Collection: Fairy Tales eBook, I knew I wanted to get it for my daughter. She was thrilled when received it. It was a new game/eBook for her Leap Pad, and it had the Leap Frog characters.
As a parent, I love how the eBook has multiple difficulty levels. My daughter is able to increase the difficulty as she gains reading skills. It starts with simple sentences and as the difficulty increases the sentences become more complex.
The Learn to Read Collection: Fairy Tales eBook teaches reading comprehension, vocabulary, phonics, sight words, and listening comprehension. It features two fairy tales: Three Little Frogs and Leap and the Beanstalk, and seven different activities. Plus it has 100 early reading words to help with your child's reading vocabulary.
One of my daughter's favorite activities is the mini-game called Marksman. It features a bow and arrow where your child is to choose the correct word based on the characteristics needed. For instance, which word has a long vowel or which word contains a silent letter.
The Learn to Read Collection: Fairy Tales eBook is available both as digital content and as a cartridge. To download, you will need 88 MB of space on your Leap Pad device, as well as an internet connection. The game is recommended for ages 4 to 6. However, my 3 year old has no problems with it.
Overall I highly recommend Leap Frog Learn to Read Collection: Fairy Tales eBook. It is educational, engaging, and a great way to improve your child's vocabulary and reading comprehension.
