Help Your Child Learn to Read & Write
LeapReader 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 Difference
Children 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 Read
Build 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 Write
Interactive 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 Listening
LeapReader 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. Many Tag books are compatible with LeapReader and many LeapReader books are also compatible with Tag. For a list of compatible titles, visit the LeapFrog corporate website.

Package Type: Standard PackagingColor: Green (New Version) Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This product is missing one thing...the ability to hold ALL of the content. I wish you could download to a USB drive or something and plug into the pen, the book you want to read. Having said that, the old one only held 10 or 12 books. That made it a product that we liked, but didn't love. This one says that it holds up to 40 titles. As it is now, it holds all the compatible titles that we currently have. Not all are compatible however, and some that will be, are not yet.

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.

We are long time users of the Tag pen system. We were pretty excited to read about this new and improved version several months ago when it was announced. We pre-ordered it so we could be some of the first to use it. We got one for each of our children - two total. We did not order from Amazon - though that would have been our preference. Amazon just didn't have the purple one in stock when we ordered. If you are excited for this improved device, it would be wise to temper your excitement. Though this is an improvement, it's not a direct upgrade.

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.

If you are not familiar with the Leap Reader or Tag reading system, then you need to know that in addition to purchasing a Leap book you need to download (using Leap Connect Software) the audio for each book as well. This issue is that Leap unapologetically sells books for which they do not yet have the audio available for download. So you end up spending a lot of money on a book that doesn't work with the Reader/Tag for which it is marketed. Nor is Leap able to provide a date when such a download will be available. Customer Support at Leap seems to think there is nothing wrong with this business model. If you already have a Leap Reader or Tag Reading system, I would highly recommend that you check (via Leap Connect) whether the title is available for download prior to purchasing a particular book.

If you are looking for a specific titles audio that is not yet available, this would indicate the book was released before we had intended. If this is the case the audio for that title will be available soon.

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.

My daughter has had the LeapReader for \about two weeks now and loves it. She is always "reading" and playing with it. I love that you have the ability to work with your child on their letters, numbers and more with this product as well. Its not just for reading which is a major plus in my book. I wanted a product that will help get my daughter ready for school. She has mastered her ABC's and 123's but to be able to help her learn to read, identify words, letters and learn to write is amazing.

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.
