The Tag Junior Book Pal is easy for parents and children to use. Parents can download audio for up to 5 books to the Book Pal, which will introduce a variety of preschool skills to toddlers through playful activities and audio responses.

Features


Chunky design


The chunky little Book Pal is easy for young children to manipulate as they stamp its wide base anywhere on the pages of a Tag Junior book. Kids can hear a block of text read aloud or listen to funny sound effects and learning songs embedded in the pictures.


Listening and reading comprehension


As children develop comprehension of books read aloud or independently, they explore the uses and functions of written language. They begin to construct meaning, eventually applying critical skills to make inferences and draw conclusions.


Reading basics


A child's early experiences with books greatly influence his or her ability to learn to read. In the If I Were... included sampler book, a boy wonders what life would be like if he were any of a variety of animals. More than 16 activities and 70 audio responses introduce animals, colors and rhyming.


LeapFrog Connect


The LeapFrog Connect application, available for free download, allows parents to download audio books, customize the Book Pal with children's names and connect to their children's unique LeapFrog Learning Path.


Tag Junior library


Each Tag Junior board book introduces a different preschool skill - such as the alphabet, counting or social play - through 24 playful activities and more than 130 audio responses (all books sold separately). Open-ended questions and fun sound effects encourage children to take charge, as they touch any part of any page to bring words, pictures or activities to life.


Accessories


This adorable storage case houses the Tag Junior Book Pal and up to 4 books (all books and accessories sold separately). The carrying handle and compact design are perfect for learning on the go, while the cute house shape turns tidying up into a game of pretend play.

My 3 yr old slightly autistic daughter has been using the Tag Jr for some time now. We love it. It holds her attention, when you place the tag over the pictures they make noises, or speak, or make silly sounds. She will spend an hour playing with the various books alone. I love that it says her uncommon name(makes it harder for it to get stolen)! I read some of the comments, and the tag jr is different from the tag. It does not read individual words, it will read the story if they place it over the words, and it will give tidbits of information/songs/sounds when placed over the pictures. It is a bit chunky and designed for little hands. I think it is unreasonable given the age group it is made for,and the design, why anyone would expect it to read single words? Would you like it to spell, and say the words in spanish/chinese too? Plus at the preschool age, it's not so much the content of the story that is important as is their interest, and their ability to engage their imagination into the story. Some greatly illustrated books are ruined by "wordy" stories. So if the kid has no interest in the written words but engages themselves in the pictures; they are using their imaginations and actually getting more out of the book.The beauty of the Tag Jr. and the Tag (we have both), is that it introduces reading in a fun way. They get kids to show interest in books and feel like they can read, and gets them to WANT to read. It can hold any small childs' attention. My 5 year old neice, also likes to play with it. If it did too much more than it does, it would come off "too schooly" for most kids. If you want your 1-4 year old to read then maybe you should just get them "your baby can read" and skip out of the toy section all together. It's an educational toy, but it's still a TOY. Some of these reviews are ridiculous.[...]. I play to gift these as presents this year; b/c they are fun so they will get used and used often... and they just happen to be educational.

I think this a great product...except for the fact that you can only download 5 books to your Tag Junior at a time. We bought this for my son's 3rd birthday along with 6 books, when I tried to download all the books it told me there was no more room. So when he wants to "read" the sixth book I have to hook it up to the computer and take one book off and download the new one. It would be MUCH better if you could download all your books!

Comments about LeapFrog TAG Junior Book Pal Reading System with Book - Green:

It has been a great product so far, but parents should understand that the device has a very small amount of memory on-board, which means that you will have to plug it in to your computer to shuffle in the audio for different books as your child's preferences change. The main point here is to keep this in mind when you are purchasing books. You may own 15 of them, but you can only load 5 of these on the device at a time.

    Comments about LeapFrog TAG Junior Book Pal Reading System with Book - Green:

    I ordered this for my 13 month old son for Christmas who is just crazy for reading books. We read at least 10-12 books a day because he just insists. We decided to try the Tag Junior as well as the original Tag reader. While he is just beginning to use the Tag Junior, he seems to really love it. I think that it is a good product for him to continue to build his love of reading.

      • Not Educational

      • Noise maker

      Comments about LeapFrog TAG Junior Book Pal Reading System with Book - Green:

      This was given to my 3y/o son for Christmas. This product is 5% reading, 95% bells, whistles, and various noises. A child can't assoicate the words with their meaning amid all the noise. Save yourself the time and trouble of downloading all the required software. Buy a $10 toy that makes noise when you press a button. This might be hightech, but it is unoriginal and even a bit juvenile for the intended age group!

          Having a hyper daughter she has a hard time sitting long enough to focus on this toy BUT she loves that it says her name! I feel she will grow to love it after I sit with her and make it exciting to hear. Any average temperment toddler will love it.
