Made just for toddlers, My First LeapPad Book takes care to encourage prereading skills while giving tots a simple, interesting story that makes learning to read a fun first experience. Just stick the included book chip into your child's LeapPad, put the book in place, and the LeapPad takes care of the rest.
Leap himself is the main character in this story, adding even more appeal to young readers as he explores the galaxy with his friends. As he goes on his quest, kids learn to comprehend the story's overall meaning, understand specific events, and practise their listening skills. In addition, this book introduces primary math skills--like numbers, counting, and basic geometric shapes. It even sneaks in a bit of deductive logic, emotional exploration, colour recognition, object matching, and positions (up, down, in, between, etc.). Flip the book over and there's more fun: over 30 activities and 4 sing-along songs. Note: The book works only with the My First LeapPad Learning System, not more advanced LeapPad systems. --Diane Beall
