Encourage reading with LeapStart Learning system

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” ― Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!
I have always loved to read. When I found out I was pregnant I decided to tackle my fear of reading out loud. I practiced Dr. Seuss books so by the time my son was older I was a pro. Every night I would read to him before he went to sleep and still continue this routine to this day! By reading to my son I encourage a love of reading in him. He now enjoys chapter books at age seven and can read on his own. When he finished first grade he tested in the third grade reading level! Reading is a big part of our family and I encourage you all to read and help your little one's learn to read as well.
When Leagfrog sent us two of the NEW LeapStart Learning systems I was so excited! My son helped me unbox them and even he agreed they were interesting! 

I am a Leapfrog Ambassador, I received a free product to facilitate my review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC Regulations.
LeapStart Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten is an interactive learning system that gets kids 2-4 years old excited about everything from counting to problem solving with fun replayable activities that teach life and school skills. With 400+ activities across a library of 16 books (sold separately), and 50 key skills per level, we’re helping kids build tomorrow’s skills today, in new imaginative ways.
Each book houses new facts, educational parts and reading activities. Kids of each age group can not only learn but have fun doing so!

The stylus is a good size for smaller sized hands and it is tethered to the unit which will keep it from getting lost. This also make it super easy to take on road trips!
This year we practiced a lot of penmanship in school. With the stylus it helps learn the correct ways to write numbers and letters effectively. 
For the preschool aged kids the books focus on shapes, numbers, colors, ABCs and routines. For the older kids they focus on STEM, Reading, Math, Geography and more.
This is a great way to encourage a love of reading and learning. I truly hope they come out with more books for the older aged children!
