The wonderful people at VTech sent us the V.Reader Animated E-Book System to review and we couldn’t be more thrilled with this system. We love it just as much as the MobiGo! It has everything a parent and a kid could want in an electronic toy designed to help kids discover the joy of reading.
Our 6 year old was really needing some help with reading. We can tell he is right at that point where it’s all about to sink in, but he needs that little extra push. Since he’s a wee bit stubborn, he prefers to learn things on his own, so the V.Reader is the perfect item for him. Most of the time when he is using it, he doesn’t even realize he’s learning because he’s having so much fun.
