Sofia the First: Sofia's New Friends

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 a 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 aged 3 to 5 years, and works with all LeapPad learning tablets (not compatible with LeapsterGS or Leapster Explorer).

Curriculum that goes beyond core skills

LeapFrog interactive storybooks are packed with learning that goes beyond practice reading. Sofia the First: Sofia's New Friends 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 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 summarising 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.

Dress-up mini-game
Expand the fun with six learning games and three mini-games, including dress-up in Sofia's closet.
Mini-games progress the story
The integrated mini-games are entertaining and also help the story to progress.
Personalised 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: Sofia's New Friends, 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' armour, 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 an effective age-appropriate learning experience. Sofia the First: Sofia's New Friends 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: Sofia's New Friends 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: Sofia's New Friends 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.

Bought this for my nearly four yr old as he is advanced in his alphabet and sounds. This game is not worth the while it is hardly a learning game.. it tells a story and randomly asks for interactions such as shaking the game or `blowing` the kite... not impressed for 15pounds... would return but as it's open I can't.

5.0 out of 5 stars good product for kids for fun 19 Feb 2014
By jenny - Published on Amazon.com

this is the latest e-book, called "interactive book". though it is a bit pricey I wanted to give it a go and I like it!
It has a story from the original episode about "troll".
You get to choose 3 different level to hear the story and you can touch each word to follow for pronunciation.
many objects to touch and discover on each stage and gams and quiz to follow after.
I don't even think I have fully discovered it all yet. kids will be quite occupied for a good time.
voices are done like the program and my daughter loved it.
I wondered what would be different from e-book and why it had to be more expensvie and now I kinda understand.
thoug I still think it's quite pricey for kids toy but well.. I am sold now.
