My Review:

We are a huge fan of Leapfrog products in our home, and especially are enjoying the Tag Reader System. Recently my daughters had the opportunity to review the Tag Learn To Read with Phonics Short Vowels set. Just as is done with the regular Tag and Tag Jr. books, your child will learn letter sounds, phonics, memorization, concepts through fun games, and listening skills. The Tag Reader Learn To Read system is a fantastic way to introduce literacy to even the youngest of readers. A fantastic way to reinforce learning from school curriculum and doing so in a fun and easy manner. Not only are children learning to recognize some of the primer sight words (I, as, it, etc) but they are also learning the sounds of letters, and having fun at the same time. I am planning to purchase the other books in the Learn to Read system as my daughter, 5 years of age, is ready to learn to read and loving this program to help her! I love that the Learn to Read system is a fantastic addition to the rest of the Tag System and is a fantastic addition to all early learning classrooms and homeschooling curriculum. Another fantastic product from Leapfrog for this Leapfrog loving family!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!

BUY IT: You can purchase the Tag Reader Learn To Read with Phonics Short Vowels at your favorite toy retailer from Leapfrog
