My kids really enjoyed this set. The hot dots pen was great in keeping my kids engaged and attentive during reading since the text was interactive. The books were fun to read with my 3 year old and he caught on pretty quickly on how to use the pen to answer questions the book was asking him. However, it would be too difficult for him to use this set without adult assistance. My 5 year old had fun reading these books once with guidance and then had fun rereading them independently (she is reading at a second grade level). The topics of the books were interesting although dinosaurs and space were the two favorite books that were constantly reread. We were given this product for free in exchange for an honest review. I would recommend this product. My kids are interested in the other hot dots products and books after reading and using this set.

So, I think this product is great. I just think my son was a little young for it, though. He's three, and I think the material was a bit advanced. I'm sure he will grow into it, though, so I'm putting it away and I am sure he will love it down the line. My nephew is a few years older and loved it!

    Both my 4 & 6 year old love Hot Dots, and I love that they are branching out and adding science. It's a great addition and to watch my kids figure out how things work and learn the different names has been awesome. I really like the new pen and how easy it is for the kids to hold.

      Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Junior Ultimate Science Facts Interactive Books with Pen:

      I have used a lot of Hot Dots products before, but most of them were phonics or math based. I also tried some that have fictional stories, but this was my first time to try a nonfiction book set. I was very pleased! This science fact book is a really cool way to get kids reading nonfiction. I like that kids can interact with each page of the book. My kids really enjoyed discovering new facts as we read.

      I received a free item, but it in no way influenced my opinion!

        The set came with 2 books and a pen. All the items seem sturdy. The books are wire-bound coated plastic and the pages are laminated to stand up to kids. My daughter is in 1st grade so we needed to work directly with her on these books. The books included fun facts and will be fun for continued learning.

          Another great Hot Dots Item!! My younger son loves the hot dots for reading and math. This is an added bonus to the hot dots family. Has great science information to learn with a great new talking pen. It really teaches kids fun new facts at a younger age, still age appropriate and fun. Has great pictures in the book as well.

                  My son is in kindergarten and loved this. It really does make learning about science fun, and I like that it is encouraging his reading skills. My son loved the talking pen that it comes with and he actually enjoyed listening to it again and again. These sets are perfect for kindergarten but I could see a younger child enjoying it as well. My sons favorite book was the one about Space.

                    My 4.5 year old son loves this. Specifically the interactive pen is no longer the blue dog which he thinks is more for younger kids. Instead it is a modern and fun green thick pen which he has said is for older kids like him! This kit manages to focus on what kids his age are fascinated by - dinosaurs, space, and scary underwater creatures! What I love most about this is he feels like he is using a technology tool but it is not the usual screen time instead he is actually looking at a book. I have sat down with him a bunch of times to go through each book and now he no longer needs me since the questions asked on each page become intuitive and he has been doing a great job.

                      So, I think this product is great. I just think my son was a little young for it, though. He's three, and I think the material was a bit advanced. I'm sure he will grow into it, though, so I'm putting it away and I am sure he will love it down the line. My nephew is a few years older and loved it!

                        This is an AMAZING product! Well worth the price! My older child has lots of educational Hot Dots products and this Hot Dots Jr. Ultimate Science Facts pack was perfect for my younger child. As with all Hot Dots products, the interactive pen is fun. I really appreciated this set because there are so many interesting and cool facts as well as beautiful illustrations in the books. The young child cannot do this independently, but I like reading it with them while they get to click on the answers. I'll be looking for more of these with different topics.
