* I received a Read with Me Scout as part of promotional campaign with Mom Select and LeapFrog. All thoughts are my own.

As much as I want to teach my daughter about the alphabet and numbers, she sometimes doesn't see me as a teacher and it is hard for me to catch her attention. It is a good thing we were sent a Read Me Scout.

Read With Me Scout from Leapfrog is an interactive plush toy which helps children develop reading comprehension skills to get them on a path to reading. Not only does puppy pal Scout make reading fun with five interactive stories that he reads aloud, but he also responds to every pet, pat, hug and kiss!

Simply press a button on his collar to start reading and pat his head to turn the page. Scout will ask your child questions throughout each story to create engaging learning moments and help build comprehension skills. Scout loves to sing, too!  

Making Scout work is very simple. You just need to turn the button to choose the mode, there are 2 available : story time and sleepy time. Story Time mode is used when your child feels like reading and then the Sleepy Time mode when it's time to snuggle and listen to relaxing stories and eight minutes of lullabies. The numbers on the collar corresponds to the number of books for your choice to read and pressing it will initiate reading.
