    Product Details


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


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

    As Violet completes each page, she 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 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 Violet features 5 different book genres that promote a range of strategies for an educational and cuddly introduction to reading.


    "From reading aloud to reading along, Read With Me Violet reflects best practices in early reading instruction that help your child develop important language and comprehension skills critical for success in preschool and beyond." 'Clement C., LeapFrog Learning Expert From the Manufacturer

    Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. 30 December 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 25 August 2014
    Rated 2 out of 5 by 2nd defective one On this one the collar buttons don't work at all .... the previous one we had issues with the front left paw not working at all. Our son loves his original Scout and was excited to get a Reading Scout ... seemingly a big swing and a miss with this particular toy. It will be going back (again) and we will invest in some learning games for the LeapPad. 05 January 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Cute and Educational Read With Me Scout is a great way to make reading fun. The toy is adorable, and the voice is soothing. The experience is interactive; kids have the option of choosing which book to read. Scout also stops periodically to ask the child to point out some aspect of the story. I am pleased with this purchase. 11 August 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING Read with me Scout is excellent. One of the most interactive toys that I have ever used. I especially like the pet and hug feature, and of course the kiss feature. It allows you to give love when you are scared at night and have a cute little friend to be there and to comfort you. The stories are entertaining as well, with a giggly sound track and soft fur. Also, the battery lasts INCREDIBLY long. Cleaning may be a little difficult and Read with me Scout also has been known to turn on at night if bumped wrong, So bear this in mind, multiple button presses may be necessary in order to get to the song that you want. Stuffing may also need replaced or refluffed after a lot of snuggles. Not a bad thing, but those four things but enough to drop features down a point. I brought this to the hospital when i was overnight, and it was cuddly and available to give me lots of snuggles, although shut off. I look forward to cuddling this cute puppy nightly, and in my opinion, is possibly the best toy leapfrog has. :) 18 October 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Scout is Awesome but wish it had more books My 3 year old got one for Christmas this past year. He was so excited because he still loves his "My Pal Scout". After we opened it and everything he had the books read within 20 min. Wish the books would have been a little longer or had more books to it. 07 January 2014
