When I saw this in a photo a few months ago, I had to have one to test out. I have tried three different adult readers: The Sony Reader, the Kindle, and the Nook. Seeing one for kids made me so very excited because our kids are so interested in ours. Vtech sent me one to review. Well, they sent one to Zoe to review, it’s made for Ages 3 to 7 win a SRP of $59.99.
Just like the adult readers, the Vtech V.reader reads aloud but as it reads the words highlight so your child can follow along and learn word recognition. It helps with phonics, and word recognition. There are certain words that if they click on them then it takes them to a definition of the word. Oh yeah, did I forget to mention it has a touch screen that works really well. And with my daughter’s knowledge of the stylus she found it and started using it in no time. My kids are so used to touch screens that they think the TV should be a touch screen.
Touch and Read System: Kids have two play options – listen and follow along to the story as read by animated characters; or touch the screen and play reading games to learn each word or sentence.
Zoe has been reading it for a while now. She really likes it and I’m grateful they sent us an extra book. We’re going to have to get some more books and even download a few when we get the chance. With a rich download library, more than 100 additional stories will be available via a download library located on the VTech Web site (www.vtechkids.com), including some free titles, more themes and avatars to customize their e-readers. V.Reader is compatible with a PC or Mac computer. You can also track their progress.
One of the great things about V.reader is that it uses characters, TV, movies and classic ones that kids love and encourages them to read along.
