Product Description

Make reading fun with 5 interactive stories!

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.

Age
2-5 years

Features
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 colorfully 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 colors 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.

Testimonial
“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.”

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.

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.

Read with me Scout

I read a review by another Mom that is exactly what I have experienced. I thought the toy was broken because every time you tried to read a new book it would start with the weather book. It asks the same questions over and over and the sleep mode does not work. Not a good quality product. Skip it.

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.

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.

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.

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.
