LeapFrog Interactive Storybook: Disney Sofia the First Sofia's New Friends (for LeapPad Tablets)

An enchanting story starring Sofia
Go beyond the castle walls as Sofia the First explores an old misunderstanding with Enchancia’s neighbors and follows her heart to make amends. This interactive storybook experience isn't just about words coming to life; it’s about jumping in and becoming part of the action. Join princess-in-training Sofia and more beloved characters from the Disney TV show on this enchanting reading adventure, and get practice with phonics, vocabulary skills, word recognition, and listening and reading comprehension along the way. The Disney interactive storybook Sofia the First: Sofia’s New Friends is designed specifically for children ages 3 to 5 and works with all LeapPad learning tablets. (Does not work with LeapsterGS or Leapster Explorer.)

Teaches:

  • Phonics
  • Vocabulary skills
  • Word recognition
  • Listening and reading comprehension
Curriculum that goes beyond core skills
LeapFrog interactive storybooks are packed with learning that goes beyond practice reading. Sofia the First features six engaging learning activities designed to encourage kids to think more deeply about the story and assess their level of understanding. In the learning game Shake & Drag, children complete short sections of the story by filling in the blanks with words that they shake out of the sentences. This activity aims to teach kids to identify the word and its logical location in the story. Another comprehension activity asks children to sequence a set of three images based on where they occur in the story, supporting early summarizing skills. Additional activities include comprehension questions that prompt children to recall key story events, draw conclusions, make inferences and consider how characters are developed throughout the story. At the end of the book, children are asked to identify a range of basic high-frequency sight words such as “the” and “of”, along with words that have predictable spelling patterns, such as can and in to reinforce beginning word recognition skills.
Personalized for every child
As with all LeapFrog interactive storybooks, Sofia the First: Sofia’s New Friends offers the same story written at three levels. The text level automatically adjusts based on a child’s performance on a range of listening comprehension and early word identification activities, which children encounter throughout the story. For children who have not yet begun to read on their own, hearing text read aloud helps build comprehension and vocabulary. Early readers can read along with or without audio, and if they would like to try to read a word on their own, they can tap it to see letters highlight as the word is sounded out. This helps foster an understanding of letter-sound relationships—the building blocks of phonics.
Fun with their favorite characters
LeapFrog interactive storybooks have integrated mini-games that are not only entertaining, but help move the story forward. As kids play, they actively experience what they are reading, bringing stories to life in a whole new way. In Sofia the First, children can extend the fun with three mini-games and a special look at the castle. They get to decorate a kite and use the motion sensor to “fly” it, play a tiny tune with Teeny Troll and select outfits for Princess Sofia from Sofia’s closet. They can even go behind-the-scenes to learn about royal life, explore knights’ armor and watch the castle acrobats perform!
Learning experts create or approve every experience
All LeapFrog educational games and interactive storybooks are created or approved by an in-house team of learning experts for the most effective, age-appropriate learning experience. Sofia the First features engaging learning activities designed by educators to build phonics, vocabulary skills, word recognition, and listening and reading comprehension skills. Vocabulary knowledge is closely linked to reading comprehension, and Sofia the First also includes a visual dictionary to help build early vocabulary skills. Children can tap highlighted words for a kid-friendly definition and see a simple animation that shows a word's meaning or how it’s used in the story. As in all titles, the visual dictionary for Sofia the First includes words such as cheer, warn and brave, which are commonly used in English oral language across a wide range of contexts. It also includes words such as majesty, observatory and royal, which are essential for understanding the story.
Key features
Read or listen along with Sofia the First and more beloved characters in this magnificent story with true heart. With three levels of text, six built-in learning games and educator-designed reading support, emergent readers can make royal strides in their reading skills while exploring this interactive storybook.

Product Description

Go beyond the castle walls as Sofia explores an old misunderstanding with Enchancia's neighbors and follows her heart to make amends. This Interactive Storybook experience isn't just about words coming to life; it's about jumping in and becoming part of the action.

Features:
This story is written at three levels - from simple text to more complex words and sentences. Story levels adjust automatically for just the right challenge. Children can touch words in the story with a finger or the stylus to hear them sounded out.

As Sofia the First interacts with the castle's cave-dwelling neighbors, readers play six learning games that help build key listening, reading comprehension and vocabulary skills. Answer questions, choose the correct words and characters, and sequence events to reinforce understanding of the story. Shake the learning tablet to turn a paragraph into a word jumble. Then drag the words back into place to complete the paragraph.

Extend the fun with three mini-games and a special look at the castle. Decorate a kite and use the motion sensor to "fly" it. Play a tiny tune with Teeny Troll, and select outfits for Princess Sofia from Sofia's closet. Then, go behind-the-scenes to learn about royal life, explore knights' armor and watch the castle acrobats perform!

Learning Difference
Interactive Storybooks help build vocabulary and phonics skills by sounding out words and linking words to audio-visual definitions. Story levels auto-adjust to the reader and introduce words with increasingly complex spelling patterns, along with high-frequency sight words.

Works with all LeapPad learning tablets (sold separately); not with LeapsterGS & Leapster Explorer. Internet connection may be required for cartridge.

Children earn badges for learning achievements that unlock special items. Parents can connect to the online LeapFrog® Learning Path for customized learning insights and ideas to expand the learning.

    I use this product for a leapfrog for my daughter so she can start learning how to read and learn words. I love that you can select a letter and it says it and it also makes the sound of the letter. Also if you select the words it repects as much as you want it too. There isnt anything about it that I dont love. My daughter loves it. I recommend this product to parents because it help to teach kids how to read and learn words and letters as the same time and is the best thing is that it come in whatever disney charater your child loves. Its great you wont be disappointed I promise.

            My girl just turned three. She loves Sofia, and this game by association.
            Having just turned three this game is challenging for her and required adult support to keep it from being to difficult. However, after a time or two through and began to pick up things mechanics of the game and now plays it on her own. I am confident she will learn alot from this game and the other leaped games as well.

              Great game for my little girl. She plays it all the time. Even though my girl has other leap pad games like it, having Sofia explain and Sofia activities show her different material of solving problems.
