We have read to Oscar from a very young age, especially at bedtime. We still do, but now that he is four, he is really becoming more interested in the stories. I even made this reading comprehension printable to talk about the stories we read and watch. I love it! I think reading is so important and it’s really fun to talk about the story and the pictures as we go through.
We are not shy about our love of LeapFrog products in my house. I am a big fan of educational toys and using technology for fun AND learning. I think LeapFrog marries the two perfectly. Oscar has enjoyed his LeapPad for a while now, but what really excites me is that he is finally getting into using the Tag reader! He knows how to select the purple ‘read to me’ button on each page to hear the story and this week he showed me that he can drag the pen over each word to read! This was a first for him and he was so proud of himself! And who are we kidding, I was beaming too.
Studies show that reading just 20 minutes a day with your child can drastically improve their aptitude for reading later in life. LeapFrog wants to encourage this love of reading by donating books to schools in need! For every share of the reading pledge on Facebook, LeapFrog will donate 5 books to public elementary schools through the charity, We Give Books. Sweet!
