Touch and Learn
The Leapfrog 100 Words Book is so simple to use for toddlers and young kids. Just turn the page and touch the items to listen to the words. Switch the language to hear the translation.
3 Learning Modes
The first mode is learning and hearing vocabulary. Just touch the page to hear what the object is called. It may be an animal or body part, a colour, or food.
The second mode is learning facts about the object. For example on the animals page “This bear is brown grrrr”, or on the colours page “Blue like the sky”.
The third mode is sounds. On the Mealtime page if you press the bottle, you hear a baby cry, or on the Pets page if you press the animal you hear the sound they make.
12 Learning Categories
There are 100 words for kids to learn in 12 categories including: Pets, Animals, Fruits, Food, Mealtime, Clothes, Colours, My Body, Activities, Outside, Vehicles, Opposites. The book gives a broad introduction to the first words for kids.
The Leapfrog 100 words book can change between the 2 languages on any page. Kids can be either be immersed in bilingual play, or for families with a Chinese and an English speaking parent, each parent can use the book in their native language.
Included with the book is a 32 page Learning Activity Guide which provides parents with hands on activities and teaching tips to get the most out of this bilingual book for kids.
Benefits of learning a second language
Speaking a second language has numerous benefits, not just for the social aspect but also on the brain. For example, according to various research, kids who are learning two languages at once are able to multi-task and have better problem-solving skills than kids who only speak one.
Learning a second language while young is so much easier than learning as an adult. The critical period for languages is before 7 years old. This is when children are able to distinguish better between sounds and therefore, they are able to imitate and pronounce them more easily.
The Leapfrog 100 Words Book can be used from about 12 months old onwards, so it is the perfect age to get kids learning young. However, it is also great for older children up to 5 years or more.
