Our Experience
Our son is just one of those kid's that seems to pick up EVERYTHING, instantly. So, when it came to reading, he picked everything up very easily and was reading on his own at the age of 2. He was reading chapter books by five, and when I look back, I don't really ever recall doing more than simply read to him frequently throughout the day and at bedtime (no long sounding it out sessions - we just read to him).

We now do the same with our daughter, and while she seemed to be advancing at a fair pace, she really needed that extra boost of help that we've found in the Tag Reader. This small wonder has her progressing phenomenally, and in more way's than one! Pen like in it's appearance, the Tag offers several settings that allow the child or parent to utilize the Tag in a variety of ways. Either use it to scroll from word to word (the child moves the Tag from word to word and it will read the words aloud), or it can read the entire sentence / page (when placed on the icon). Adding to the array of features, the Tag Reader also allows children to learn/practice handwriting with the corresponding handwriting kits for this device (walking children through the strokes needed to create each letter).

Our daughter was thrilled when recently introduced her to the Solar System Adventure pack, and couldn't wait to explore the fold out map with her Tag! By placing the device on the icons she can explore a variety of fun facts about the Solar System, and each planet. 

What I've discovered as a parent, is that our daughter loves the independence and ability to explore the books, maps, and writing activities on her own! Without being so dependent on my husband or myself to walk her through each step, or sound out each word, she's actually progressing more quickly and confidently than before. That independence is allowing her to flourish and advance more quickly than I could have ever imagined possible, before experiencing the Tag Reader! 

LeapFrog offers an expansive library of books (available in some favorite licensed character themes kids will love), maps, and writing kits for the TAG reading system, so your sure to find a ton of options that your child will love!

The Tag Reader would make the perfect gift this Holiday season!

  3. Great idea. Now if a parent needs to get something else done, there's another alternative to putting the tv on.

  4. We have the Tag Jr and my 3yr old just loves to listen to stories and feels like a big boy to be able to hear books all on his own :)
