LeapReader Junior Disney's Jake and the Never Land Pirates Review (LeapFrog)

What It Is

Disney's Jake and the Never Land Pirates interactive book is a 15-page board book filled with colorful illustrations of Jake, Captain Hook, and the rest of the gang on Pirate Island. The book is compatible with the LeapReader Junior, which is sold separately. Your child can use the LeapReader Junior Book Pal to hear more than 150 audio prompts throughout the book. This includes a silly, rhyming adventure story about a monkey stealing bongos from Captain Hook after he stole them from Cubby. By touching the characters and other images on the page, kids can also hear funny sounds, character's voices, and music, while learning counting and spatial reasoning skills.

Is It Fun?

This book encourages kids to participate as they're prompted to count and identify different things. This offers a fun way to encourage toddlers to read, count, and follow directions. We were impressed by all the different ways to interact with the book. Fans of Jake will love seeing their favorite characters dance, fly, and count their gold doubloons. The book also offers a fun way to introduce the characters to new fans.

Who It’s For

Disney's Jake and the Never Land Pirates is for ages 1-3. Although, we think toddlers may be more interested in exploring the book than reading the story itself.

What To Be Aware Of

You will need to have your LeapReader Junior set up with your computer and the audio for the book downloaded to your LeapReader Junior Book Pal before you start.
