Watch your little one light up with LeapFrog Read With Me Violet and a complete set of five colorful books! This adorable introduction-to-reading experience is designed by our learning experts to inspire and entertain early readers everywhere! Read With Me Violet provides cuddly story-time experiences that help lay the foundation for a rewarding lifelong love of reading. The plush puppy pal makes reading fun with five interactive, read-aloud books narrated by Violet. She responds to every pet, pat, hug and kiss. Press a button on Violet's collar to start reading and pat her head to turn the page. Violet loves to sing, too! Switch into Sleepy Time Mode when it's time to snuggle and listen to relaxing stories and eight minutes of lullabies. Start your child's reading journey on a cuddly note with an interactive plush toy that helps children develop reading comprehension skills to get them on a path to reading. Turn reading time into an exciting new experience with this groundbreaking toy loaded with storybooks, music, lullabies and interact-and-respond activities. Read With Me Violet is specifically designed to provide a leading-edge early reading curriculum. Whether you're supplementing the precious time spent reading with your child or providing a new, enriching activity, Read With Me Violet helps build a range of cognitive skills. Each of the five storybooks is designed around a unique core curriculum covering the bases from patterns and rhyming to narrative and concept. Violet asks more than 70 questions prepared by early reading experts to encourage active engagement and to build important comprehension skills. The play-based curriculum is designed to delight and entertain. Research has demonstrated that the most effective read-aloud experiences are interactive: children learn best when they are actively involved in asking and answering questions, drawing inferences and making predictions. Read With Me Violet was specifically developed to bring this interactive experience to kids in a magical way to develop key comprehension skills. As your child reads along with Violet, over 70 spoken questions and audio responses help build comprehension skills that will get your little one on the path to reading success. Discoveries abound when Violet reads out loud! Read With Me Violet includes five different book genres that offer a range of ways to build early reading skills as your child is exposed to different storytelling concepts. The Pattern Book includes rhymes, refrains and repetition to encourage children to predict what comes next; the Narrative Book takes children through a story put together with characters, settings and a sequence of events; the Learn-About Book helps reveal our world through reading and reinforces the concept that print carries meaning; in the Rhyming Book, children learn about the sounds of language while building phonological awareness; and the Concept Book explores concepts like colors to label and classify new information.
  • Cuddly companion provides story-time experiences to help children develop a rewarding, lifelong love of reading
  • Violet narrates the five included interactive, read-aloud board books and asks over 70 comprehension questions to engage kids
  • Five interactive spots respond to your touch - you can pet her back to answer questions, kiss her cheek and hear her say you're her best friend, press her left paw to hear songs and press her right paw for more responses
  • Teaches listening and reading comprehension: As children develop comprehension of books read aloud or independently, they explore the uses and functions of written language, begin to construct meaning and eventually apply critical skills to make inferences and draw conclusions
  • Teaches vocabulary: The larger their vocabulary, the easier it is for children to comprehend what they read and hear and communicate with others
  • Teaches rhyming: Children learn about the sounds of language and build phonological awareness
  • Teaches learn-about: Learn about the world through reading and recognize how print carries meaning
  • Teaches narratives: Learn about how stories are put together, with characters, settings and a sequence of events
  • Teaches patterns: Rhymes, refrains and repetition help kids predict what comes next
  • Teaches concepts: Explore concepts like colors to label and classify new information

        My granddaughter is just over 2.5 and liked it as soon as she saw it. She was able to play with it immediately, perhaps because of her earlier Violet Pal. I think she'll like it but for the problem mentioned below.

        It comes with 5 little books that Violet reads aloud when the book number on her collar is pressed.

        Unfortunately, the numbers on the one I bought had 2 '5's and no '4'. i.e. 1,2,3,5,5!

        HOW is a person supposed to teach number sequence or ask a child who wants to read the #4 book to press the correct button?

        Serious manufacturing and quality control problem, so if you buy one, check the numbers on the collar to be sure you got 1,2,3,4, and 5. In fact, check it very carefully, try the buttons and touch spots to be sure all of it works.

                We received this as a Christmas gift from family. My 4 year-old thoroughly enjoys "petting" and listening to Scout read the included stories. I expect to be replacing quite a few sets of batteries with this toy, which I consider a positive as Read With Me Scout successfully engages my son everyday. The only issue I see is that there doesn't seem to be any way to upgrade or purchase additional stories for Scout to read. My family trashed the box along with any instructions as Read With Me Scout was a present left by Santa Clause.

                    Purchased this for my 2 1/2 year old grandson and he is enjoying it. He hasn't quite understood he can do it himself, but I feel certain he'll get there. I believe it will be the perfect gift for him as he grows into that "I can do it myself" stage.

                                    Read with me Scout is excellent. One of the most interactive toys that I have ever used. I especially like the pet and hug feature, and of course the kiss feature. It allows you to give love when you are scared at night and have a cute little friend to be there and to comfort you. The stories are entertaining as well, with a giggly sound track and soft fur. Also, the battery lasts INCREDIBLY long. Cleaning may be a little difficult and Read with me Scout also has been known to turn on at night if bumped wrong, So bear this in mind, multiple button presses may be necessary in order to get to the song that you want. Stuffing may also need replaced or refluffed after a lot of snuggles. Not a bad thing, but those four things but enough to drop features down a point. I brought this to the hospital when i was overnight, and it was cuddly and available to give me lots of snuggles, although shut off. I look forward to cuddling this cute puppy nightly, and in my opinion, is possibly the best toy leapfrog has. :)

                                        We loved our my pal scout, and my pal violet so it was no surprise we also love the read along Violet. The stores are just the right length for our 2 year old, she loves to read along. It teaches her so much, colors, following instructions, basic songs and counting. We love the bed time settings too and the music is perfect. The only con I have is when you are choosing the story. It tells you about the cover and helps make sure you have the right book. I usually have the book first then hit a button.
