LeapFrog Read With Me Scout

Watch your little one light up with LeapFrog Read With Me Scout and a complete set of five colourful books! This adorable introduction to reading experience is designed by LeapFrog learning experts to inspire and entertain early readers everywhere. Read With Me Scout provides cuddly storytime experiences that help lay the foundation for a rewarding lifelong love of reading. The plush puppy pal makes reading fun with five interactive, read-aloud books narrated by Scout.

Scout responds to every pet, pat, hug, and kiss – press a button on Scout's collar to start reading, and pat his head to turn the page. Scout loves to sing, too! Switch into Sleepy Time Mode when it's time to snuggle and listen to relaxing stories and eight minutes of lullabies. Start your child's reading journey on a cuddly note with an interactive plush toy that helps children develop reading comprehension skills to get them on a path to reading.

Learning skills

Turn reading time into an exciting new experience with this engaging toy loaded with storybooks, music, lullabies, and interact-and-respond activities. Read With Me Scout is specifically designed to provide early reading curriculum, and whether you're supplementing the precious time spent reading with your child or providing a new enriching activity, it helps build a range of cognitive skills.

Each of the five storybooks is designed around a unique core curriculum covering the bases from patterns and rhyming to narrative and concept. Scout asks more than 70 questions prepared by early reading experts to encourage active engagement and build important comprehension skills. The play-based curriculum is designed to delight and entertain, and is appropriate for children aged 2 to 5 years old.

Innovative learning approach

Discoveries abound when Scout reads out loud! Read With Me Scout includes five different book genres that offer a range of ways to build early reading skills as your child is exposed to different storytelling concepts.

  • The Pattern Book, "Let's Go Camping!", includes rhymes, refrains, and repetition to encourage children to predict what comes next
  • The Narrative Book, "Let's Find Scout's Toy!", takes children through a story put together with characters, settings, and a sequence of events
  • The Concept Book, "Let's Have a Party!", explores concepts like colours to label and classify new information
  • In the Rhyming Book, "Let's Cheer Up Eli!", children learn about the sounds of language while building phonological awareness
  • The Learn-About Book, "Let's Learn About the Weather!", helps reveal our world through reading, and reinforces the concept that print carries meaning
The LeapFrog difference

Research has demonstrated that the most effective read-aloud experiences are interactive. In other words, children learn best when they are actively involved in asking and answering questions, drawing inferences, and making predictions. Read With Me Scout was specifically developed to bring this interactive experience to kids in a magical way to develop key comprehension skills. As your child reads along with Scout, more than 70 spoken questions and audio responses help build comprehension skills that will get your little one on the path to reading success.

Style Name: Violet Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I fell in love with this long before my granddaughter even set eyes on it, & so wish I'd had something for myself when I was a child. It's a perfect size for cuddling and yet very durable despite being dropped repeatedly. I sometimes felt I wanted to rescue "her" but she proved my fears unfounded. I think (in a perfect world) the only extra I'd have liked would have been removable coats/covers for washing as it can get a bit dirty at times, but easily sponged clean.

Educationally, the books are fine. Patting Violet's head began the story, & it was lovely watching my granddaughter almost falling asleep to the slightly hypnotic voice. With the stories being interactive, it keeps the interest up more than just hearing it read to her. Mind you I'm not so sure on the cheek squeezing idea - she just tried that out on her year old pup - he wasn't quite so accomodating but we explained to her that Violet's a special type of dog who will allow her to do such things, but perhaps not to try them out on the local pups!!

Overall, a great toy & one that will last for some time to come I suspect.

We bought this for Christmas for our 2yr old daughter and she loves it. It's lovely and soft but durable too. The books are a good size but small enough for little hands and there's so much to do. I highly recommend it to anyone.

Style Name: Scout Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I gave this to my 4 year old nephew who's just started school part-time. I was worried that he may be too old as the blurb says from 2, but he adored it. He loves Scout and it really helps that he's also on telly - this green doggy Scout is a boy and there's a purple doggy version LeapFrog Read with Me (Violet) that's for the girls. My nephew uses all five illustrated reading books supplied with Scout. He sits down with the books and Scout, and he's keen to learn as he's doing similar things at school in reception class. Scout says things like "Touch my head if you want to do the green book". Touch his head and he says "Oh we've chosen the green book". And my nephew works through the book with Scout while sitting on his own - no adult help needed. We think 4 is a good age for this Read With Me Scout toy, as Scout needs some skill to get working correctly, which may be beyond those under 4 (at age 2 he would just be a nice cuddly thing).

It's suggested you can also read the books at bedtime, but we haven't read them to him as Scout reads them out anyway. My nephew does like story books and he wants to be read a story every night, so that's probably why Scout was such a hit. In fact when his mum was sick in bed recently with a cold, he brought Scout in to see her and they got married apparently (after Scout said a few words). So for us, Read With Me Scout is a good educational toy and a nice cuddly, and we rate it 5*. The books have UK spellings, the Scout toy & books are well made, and Scout has a British sounding voice. Scout requires 3xAA batteries which are included, and he has a lot of stock phrases such as 'You are my best friend' and over 70 comprehension questions about pages in the books. Scout is quite large and made of material rather than fur. Scout is now so popular with my nephew, he has become his preferred night-time cuddly in bed.

very hard to use the toy - It's hard and long lasting to navigate to the different books to be able to be read by the toy - not possible by my child,
