It is very exciting that the LeapReader activity books
have developed to include an opportunity to draw on actual learning paper. My youngest was surprised seeing his
drawings appear on the special paper and quite pleased. I have found it harder to engage my youngest
in learning activities, as he does not have the concentration powers of his
older brother, so trying out new interesting ways to capture his interest is
he seems to love his new Write It With Disney Pixar book from Leapfrog, I think seeing
all his favourite Disney characters and working through the games with them
means he is happy to learn and no longer gets frustrated. The book has a mixture of reading, writing
and drawing activities so he does not get bored as he continues through the
book. Youngest enjoyed introducing me
to his new fish, he was quite proud of his attempt. It’s great he has another means to express himself creatively now
thanks to Leapfrog.
am really impressed with this latest development from Leapfrog because even my
eldest at seven could do with practising his writing, his reading is fairly
advanced but this book might help him have more rounded skills and catch up in
other area’s. Obviously I give them
ample opportunity to get drawing/writing with an assortment of pens and paper
but if they are not in the mood I can forget it! This Disney Pixar book however seems to entice them in with the
lovely illustrations, the appealing characters and the fascinating games and
challenges. I want learning to be fun
and this book is just that.
an extra bonus you get an additional pack of 25 learning paper sheets to
continue practising you’re drawing and writing, so plenty of chances to develop
as an artist. With an RRP of £19.99
(and you can shop around to get it cheaper!) it offers lots of entertainment, ideal
for surviving the last few weeks of the summer holiday.
you buy a LeapReader make sure you charge it up first and download all the book
materials onto it before introducing it to your child, otherwise they might not
be too keen waiting to get stuck into their new activities. On the plus side though I do like that the
LeapReader is rechargeable. I can never
seem to find batteries anymore in our new house, whereas I always seem to know
where my laptop is, so can recharge easily through the USB cable.
