Children’s Library wins $1,000 Leapfrog Tag Reading Kit!

The Children’s Library is now offering Leapfrog Tag Readers for little ones  to practice and develop their reading skills. As a child moves the Tag Reader Pen across each word of a book, the story is read aloud, reinforcing the relationship between the written word and its sounds and meaning. Four different Tag Reader Pens are available; each Pen is loaded with a collection of 12 books.

Book collections include beginning reader titles which support learning vowels and consonants; other titles provide stories for children who have progressed to reading on their own or with less assistance. Also available for use with the Tag Reader Pens are U S and World Maps. Children who are 10 years old or younger can sign up at the Children’s Library Service Desk to use a Tag Reader for one hour  each day.

A library patron nominated the Athenaeum to receive the Leapfrog Tag Reading Kit  through Leapfrog’s Love Your Library program. Stop by the Children’s Library soon to give your little one a chance to try this interactive, educational learning tool!
