LeapFrog Launches LeapReader Read and Write Solution for Children

May 03, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- LeapFrog Enterprises, Inc., a provider of educational entertainment, announced LeapReader, the complete learn to read and write solution for children.

According to a release, LeapReader, is the next generation of learning that helps children build literacy skills and reading confidence. With LeapReader's three essential experiences learn to read, learn to write and learn through listening children sound out words and read sentences, write letters with interactive guidance, and develop comprehension skills through audio books, music and more all available in the LeapReader library of more than 150 learning experiences.

"For the last 18 years, LeapFrog has helped millions of children around the world to learn to read," said John Barbour, chief executive officer at LeapFrog. "With LeapReader, we are taking the way children learn to read to the next level and adding writing to build a foundation for future academic success. Our highly experienced team of learning experts worked alongside our talented teams of designers and producers to create the ultimate reading tool and engaging content experiences that reinforce a child's language and literacy skills. We are extremely proud of how fun and interactive every book, workbook, map, audio book and flash card is while providing children rich and unique learning experiences." "The statistics are jaw-dropping one in six children who are not reading proficiently in third grade fail to graduate from high school on time, four times the rate for children with proficient third grade reading skills[ii]," said Dr. Jody Sherman LeVos, leader of LeapFrog's Learning Team. "We know that children learn to read and write better when experienced together. LeapReader allows these skills to be practiced concurrently using physical books along with related skills like listening comprehension. With LeapReader, as children touch letters to hear their sounds and listen to words pronounced and sounded out, they build phonics and word recognition skills. Additionally, as they trace and write letters, they learn about proper stroke order and writing fluency." LeapFrog said it worked closely with publishing partners including Random House, Scholastic Inc. and KIDZ BOP, among others, to select the best audio content for the LeapReader library.
