LeapReader by LeapFrog



Dear Class of 2025,

You are cordially invited to our LeapReader Ready, Set, Read & Write Party of the Year! If you are ready to have some major fun this week in Mrs. A’s class, then come see JetSet Fam during Tuesday morning centers and we’ll have a blast!

– JetSet Mom

For those who know me IRL, it’s not a surprise to find out that I take JetSet Tot’s education and school pretty seriously. Yes, I know she’s only in 1st grade, but education is one of the biggest and most important lifelong gifts as a parent I can give my child. I also adore the other students she spends more than 30 hours a week with inside her classroom. The children are so amazing and to watch how much they grow from September to June always seems to leave me scratching my head in wonder.

And I also love seeing ‘how’ children learn. Not exactly through lessons, or assignments, but what little things trigger their little brains to light up and make them excited about reading and writing. When LeapFrog generously offered to send over two of their LeapReaders pre-loaded with books and learning apps, I jumped at the chance to participate and bring them to her class. You can say we had a very special “Ready, Set, Read & Write” Party! during one of our recent morning sessions.


Obviously, the children were beyond excited once they saw everything LeapFrog sent. They couldn’t wait to get started, and once they did, the hour and a half absolutely flew by. The LeapReader allowed the children not only to work independently, but to work in teams helping assist each other across regardless of what level each child was at. They enjoyed working together and it was great to introduce a new tool to for them to enjoy the process of learning.


We covered three essential experiences: Learn to Read – sounding out words, reads sentences, and lets children play games and puzzles. Learn to Write – provides children with interactive guidance as they practice writing letters and numbers on special paper and Learn through Listening – Audio books, learning songs and trivia challenges to build comprehension skills and vocabulary.


The LeapFrog materials we practiced were: Learn to Write Letters with Mr. Pencil, Talking Words Factory Writing Workbook, Talking Words Factory Flash Cards, LeapReader Sampler books and the big hit of our party… the LeapFrog Disney-Pixar Monster University 3D book with special 3D glasses!


Overall, Mrs. A’s first grade class had a blast and the smiles filling the classroom were huge. I’m so happy The JetSet Family had the opportunity to share this fabulous learning resource with Tot’s friends and classmates. To see children having such a fun time learning was just as exciting as a parent.


Through this program, I have become a big fan of the LeapFrog learning systems. I would love to answer any questions to might have, so please feel free to ask away in the comments or send me an email at nicole@jetsetfam.com.

    It is very rewarding to see a child having fun while learning. My daughter has special needs, so more often than not, there are tears during learning time. I should have taken a look at LeapFrog long ago, thanks for the info!

  • Ashley S October 21, 2013

    Love LeapFrog products!! So great for teaching kids to read and more 🙂

  • Diane W October 21, 2013

    Im so jealous! I wish they had all this cool leapfrog stuff when I was a kid!

  • Molly October 21, 2013

    One of these would be so perfect for my kindergartener and even second grader. I think I’ll be adding them to my kids Christmas list this year 🙂 Thanks for sharing!!

  • Maryann Candito October 21, 2013

    My son always loved his leapfrog, they are such great educational tools, and they have come a long way in 12 years. Thank you for a great post. 🙂

  • tara pittman October 21, 2013

    Looks like the kids are enjoying the books

  • Barbara Bianchi October 21, 2013

    LeapFrog has come a long way since I taught my children to read 10 years ago. I’m sure the kids really enjoy the 3D. I share your enthusiasm.

  • Renee October 21, 2013

    I would have never thought to use this in my preschool classroom. This is a great way to help children read. They can see the words as it reads it to them, which will help them learn to read faster, but it can also help with a word they don’t know

  • Alyssa C October 21, 2013

    I love LeapFrog products!!! Great review, thanks for sharing!

  • Keela Allen November 5, 2013

    I was thinking of getting my kids a leapfrog I heard they are very great learning tools, great post

  • Tina Peterson November 17, 2013

    I would LOVE to have one of these. I’ve been eyeing them at Wally World but haven’t splurged on it yet. I’ve actually been looking at the leapster since it has so many things you can do with it…

    Great post!
