Help Your Child Learn to Read & WriteLeapReader is the complete learn-to-read-and-write system that helps your child learn to read and write by sounding out words and guiding letter strokes interactively.** LeapReader engages kids in imaginative stories with lively character voices while building vocabulary and reading comprehension skills.
The Learning DifferenceChildren learn to read and write better when they learn to read and write together. LeapReader is the complete learn-to-read-and-write solution that combines three essential literacy skills: reading, writing and listening. By practicing them together, children can grow the skills they need help them become confident, independent readers.
Learn to ReadBuild important early reading fundamentals like phonics, vocabulary and reading comprehension. Bring stories to life with lively character voices and fun sound effects as LeapReader sounds words out letter by letter.** The LeapReader library offers a wide range of interactive books, flash cards and more that make learning to read exciting. Titles include Disney-Pixar's Monsters University book in 3D, which takes children into Mike and Sulley's monster world to help them build comprehension and vocabulary skills; LeapFrog's Leap and the Lost Dinosaur book lets kids practice reading skills while they explore science and archaeology; to LeapFrog's Get Ready for Kindergarten multi-subject interactive book designed to introduce more than 40 kindergarten readiness skills with engaging art and fun audio effects.
Learn to WriteInteractive handwriting guidance helps children learn to write stroke-by-stroke, as their writing magically appears on special LeapFrog Learning Paper.** Practice writing letters and numbers, words and equations, and solve math problems and puzzles. New interactive writing workbooks in the LeapReader library such as Learn to Write Letters with Mr. Pencil integrate reading and writing in a fun, seamless experience. As children build phonics skills, they can also learn to write letters and numbers using the correct sequence of strokes, while they receive interactive guidance and positive reinforcement. These new workbooks feature revolutionary LeapFrog Learning Paper which contains ink embedded within the page for a mess-free writing solution.
Learn through ListeningLeapReader helps develop listening comprehension and vocabulary skills on-the-go with a growing library of 100+ audio books and more featuring classic and popular children's books that encourage a love of reading. Sing along with fun learning songs anytime, anywhere and enjoy fun trivia challenges. Popular audio books available in the LeapFrog App Center for LeapReader include Clifford the Big Red Dog and the Magic Treehouse series to music albums such as LeapFrog Learning Rhythms and KIDZ BOP 24.
150+ books and more!The LeapReader library includes 150+ books, audio books, flash cards, maps, learn-to-write sets, music albums and trivia challenges and lets parents easily personalize their child's learning journey by choosing titles based on their reading level, favorite characters or learning style.

Top Customer Reviews
The other downside with this product is that when you want to download another title, you have to re-download it every time. It doesn't save them like it used to. That may not make sense to the new users, and isn't a huge issue due to the larger storage capability, but still mildly annoying.
With all of the negatives out of the way, I still would recommend this product. The battery life is long. We will go several months before it needs to be changed. It allows a child who loves books to spend time exploring themselves. They also offer way more content than they used to. I am glad to see they brought out a new one. I thought this product was dead when they brought out their last Christmas offerings, and it made me disappointed. Glad to see I was wrong.
One small thing I would say as well, for parents who are buying this as a Christmas gift. Open the package and get the books downloaded and ready to go before you wrap it up. It does take some time and considerable effort to get it up and running. It is not a add batteries and go type of item.
Many of the Tag books that are supposed to be compatible have not been readied for the device quite yet. I'm surprised LeapFrog put this device out without baking their content fully. It seems content would take less time and effort than the hardware, but that's just a guess. Also, contrary to many of the early reviews I've seen, NOT ALL TAG BOOKS WILL BE COMPATIBLE. LeapFrog has a list of compatible titles on their website. LeapFrog did say in their press release that LeapReader "is backwards compatible with MOST of the Tag library." I just think it's strange that they didn't make all of the books compatible. Their support told me that if they don't make the book anymore, it won't be updated. I'm not sure why this is as it can't possibly take much effort to port the old files. I mean, at least make them an audiobook. I suppose it's licensing issues. You know who doesn't care about licensing issues? My 5 year old and 3 year old. They just know that Spider-Man won't work on their new pens. Their other favorite is "T-Rex's Mighty Roar." Fortunately, that one IS available as an audiobook, albeit not an interactive one.
The biggest nightmare of this device is the LeapFrog Connect software you have to use.Read more ›
You can also check our compatibility list available through LeapFrog.com to check that your book works with your device. Most Tag titles are available for the LeapReader device.
We appreciate you taking the time to provide us with your feedback, we look to ensure a better experience for you in the future.
This product is an amazing value when you look at the many years of use your child will have. In addition to the many different methods of learning that LeapFrog has packed into this amazing product. In addition the books and workbooks are very reasonably priced, and make great rewards, gifts and more. I strongly encourage that you check out this product, and consider purchasing it next time you are in the market for a new toy for your child or a gift. You will be glad that you did.
