    Read With Me Scout/Violet is a playful toy pup that reads and asks questions. It's an interactive get ready-to-read toy that's doggone fun! Scout/Violet reads from the five included board books and engages children by asking questions throughout the story to help build comprehension skills.

    2-5 years

    Scout/Violet features 5 interactive spots that respond to your touch. You can pet his back to answer questions; kiss his cheek and hear him say you're his best friend; press his left paw to hear songs; and press his right paw for more responses.

    As Scout/Violet completes each page, he will ask the child 1 of 70+ different engagement and comprehension questions over the course of the 5-book set.

    The 5 colourfully illustrated board books teach: 1) Rhyming-helps children learn about the sounds of language and build phonological awareness, 2) Learn-about-learn about the world through reading and recognize how print carries meaning, 3) Narrative-learn about how stories are put together, with characters, settings, and a sequence of events, 4) Pattern-learn with rhymes, refrains and repetition to predict what comes next, and 5) Concept-explore concepts like colours to label and classify new information.

    Learning Difference
    Research has demonstrated that the most effective read-alouds are those in which children are actively involved in asking and answering questions and making predictions rather than passively listening. Read with Me Scout/Violet features 5 different book genres that promote a range of strategies for an educational and cuddly introduction to reading.

    LeapFrog - Read with me Scout English Edition is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poorly Programmed in my opinion I hope that we are using it wrong. However, it does not work as advertised. You can not do anything until it sings through the songs and reads half of the weather story. Every time. My daughter never gets to a new story because she is tired of hearing the same half of the weather book, but it takes too long to be able to change it. Also, on the sleep time setting it is supposed to turn off talking features so as not to wake the child while cuddling. This does not work, and that setting does the exact same things as the reading setting. I thought we had a defective one, so we exchanged for a new one. It does the same thing, so must be the programming.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strange error -- buy with caution ... My granddaughter is just over 2.5 and liked it as soon as she saw it. She was able to play with it immediately, perhaps because of her earlier Violet Pal. I think she'll like it but for the problem mentioned below. It comes with 5 little books that Violet reads aloud when the book number on her collar is pressed. Unfortunately, the numbers on the one I bought had 2 '5's and no '4'. i.e. 1,2,3,5,5! HOW is a person supposed to teach number sequence or ask a child who wants to read the #4 book to press the correct button? Serious manufacturing and quality control problem, so if you buy one, check the numbers on the collar to be sure you got 1,2,3,4, and 5. In fact, check it very carefully, try the buttons and touch spots to be sure all of it works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great step-up from My Pal Scout We received this as a Christmas gift from family. My 4 year-old thoroughly enjoys "petting" and listening to Scout read the included stories. I expect to be replacing quite a few sets of batteries with this toy, which I consider a positive as Read With Me Scout successfully engages my son everyday. The only issue I see is that there doesn't seem to be any way to upgrade or purchase additional stories for Scout to read. My family trashed the box along with any instructions as Read With Me Scout was a present left by Santa Clause.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuddly Educational Toy that Promotes Reading Violet has quickly become one of my son's favorite toys. Besides being educational and promoting reading readiness, Violet is very soft and cuddly. Even when he is not reading the books with her, he loves to have her come on his adventures camping under the dining room table or exploring the cave under the bed. I have found it is very rare to have an electronic and educational toy that is also cuddly. As far as the educational aspects of this toy, I started off a little skeptical. Many toys that claim to teach reading comprehension do nothing of the sort, or they have one set of questions that the child hears every time they read the book. Read with Me Violet has many different questions, and I have not had the same experience reading a book with her yet. The questions she asks encourage the child to make connections to their own feelings as well as asking the child to look closer at the book and interact with the pictures and context of the story. I like that Violet reinforces the correct answer after she asks it most of the time. I did find it a little odd that when she asks you to pat her back if you feel happy, she will not accept any other answer before moving on in the story. What if the child is not feeling happy at the time? Other than that, I felt that the educational portion of this toy was very well done. As for ease of use, when I first introduced my 3 year old son to Violet, I handed her to him with the books. I showed him how to turn her on and off (that's always his first question), and showed him how to choose which book he wanted her to read. Then I let him explore on his own. He was quickly able to follow her directions and even started answering some of the questions verbally (something that he doesn't usually do with inanimate objects like TV shows). He was also able to easily figure out how to turn the page and answer questions using the sensors. Overall, I think that this toy definitely does what it advertises. I would definitely recommend this toy to other parents who want to encourage their child to love reading, especially if they are not a family that reads together every day. As a teacher, I would love my students to come to me with the experiences they get from playing with this toy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy! I like the fact that this toy is also educational. I tend to buy toys that are fun as well as educational. They will get a lot of use from this toy as well as having fun with it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very nice idea, but needs some work. My 3 year old loves anything with Scout. He already has a My Pal Scout (which is a great toy and one of his favorites), and when he saw Read With Me Scout at the store yesterday he desperately wanted to take it home. However, ours doesn't seem to work as well as we would like. To turn the page of the story, you have to pat it's head precisely on the star spot, not too soft or too hard, and if you pat it too many times then it goes and does something else. (Even I had some trouble getting it to work right, so this does not seem to be a toy my child can play with independently yet. He needs my help to facilitate and he needs me to help him with getting the patting right. I realized afterward that you can also pet instead of patting, but we'll try that this weekend.) Also, I wish there was an option to lock the story mode so that if my son picks up Scout to hold him while reading the book, Scout doesn't stop reading. Also, Scout will change stories if my son pushes the buttons on his collar during a story, even if he didn't intend to change the story. When that happens, you have to go back to the story you were reading and start it all over again. I am trying to teach him that some of these motions will cause Scout to stop reading, but I don't know if he gets it yet. I also wish squeezing Scout's paw continuously wouldn't cause him to change songs non-stop (my son does sometimes does this with My Pal Scout, too). You also have to be very careful not to get this Scout wet or dirty.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great toy thats a cuddler too We loved our my pal scout, and my pal violet so it was no surprise we also love the read along Violet. The stores are just the right length for our 2 year old, she loves to read along. It teaches her so much, colors, following instructions, basic songs and counting. We love the bed time settings too and the music is perfect. The only con I have is when you are choosing the story. It tells you about the cover and helps make sure you have the right book. I usually have the book first then hit a button.
