      For my daughter’s second birthday, we bought her a Leapfrog Tag Jr. Reader. This is a small handheld device that can be used along with specific Leapfrog books in order to read the books out loud. You download the audio file for a specific book to the device, and when the child touches the book, it will pronounce the words on the page as well as singing songs.

      For the most part, we’ve been very happy with it. At 2, my daughter couldn’t really


      figure out right away how to use the Tag Junior reader on her own, and just turned it on and off a lot, but after a few months she got the hang of it. It fits in her hand nicely, and is a way to keep her busy while I get things done and to make her feel like she is reading on her own. I feel good about it because it is helping her understand that the text contains the message,

      • and exposing her to more books.

        There are a few negatives. The Tag Jr has a very limited selection of books, and they are kind of expensive. If your child is a little older, you may be better off buying a regular Leapfrog Tag Reader because they can also read the Junior books, but the Junior can’t read the regular Tag books. Also, as I said before, this was a little hard for my daughter to figure out at first. It can

        be a little finicky as to where on the page you need to touch to get the words. Also, there is a limit to how many books can be preloaded on the device, and it is kind of annoying to hook it up and switch off the books.

        Overall, I’m glad we purchased the Tag Jr. reader, but it does have some flaws. It’s not my favorite toy but it really is a clever little tool for helping little kids build pre-reading skills and play independently
