These tips will help you make the most out of your LeapFrog Tag Reading System.
  1. Teach your child how to hold the pen properly. The camera is located behind the tip of the pen, so it’s important to make sure it can “see” the pages.
  2. Show your child how to use the pen to read words. You should move the pen slowly across the words to keep them from running into each other. Also, explain the different symbols on each page of the book. There is a legend in the front of each book, but kids may not understand what it means.
  3. Read the books through with your kids the first time. This introduces them to the story and allows them to ask questions.
  4. Encourage your kids to read the books to you as their skills increase. This allows you to help guide their learning and also gives them a sense of accomplishment.
