So glad we found this series.

My son adores all of these videos. He has watched them probably hundreds of times and loves the storytelling aspect of this one. In the show they put on the play of the 3 Little Pigs and he and I will reconstruct the play together in our living room. He also has learned that the words should be read together instead of broken. Which can be a difficult concept to grasp. The show is entertaining and doesn't resort to name calling or bullying tactics by the characters to carry a weak story line.
So glad we found this series.

My son hasn't learned to read yet, so I thought I would but this to help guide him along. As the movie played along my son became uninterested in it. It wasn't attractive enough for my autistic son, but it did highlight words in the story as it went along with repetetion, which is what I was looking for. But the story couldn't keep his interest.

This video is a fantastic way to give budding readers a huge advantage. The story captures kids' imaginations while providing explicit directions for reading aloud including tone of voice, reading pace, and taking cues from punctuation marks.

Amazing product helped make my 3 year old a reader!

I have long been a fan of the rest of the Leap Frog videos and products. The first 3 videos in the series [[ASIN:B0000INU6S Leap Frog - Letter Factory]][[ASIN:B0000INU6I Leap Frog - Talking Words Factory]][[ASIN:B0002V7U0U Leap Frog - Talking Words Factory 2 - Code Word Caper]] helped my oldest son (now 8 and reading at the 9th grade level) learn to read in kindergarten. I picked this dvd up for my 3 1/2 year old who knows all of his letters and their sounds and could sound out simple 3 letter words without assistance after faithfully watching his brother's Leap Frog video series for the last 6 months. He loves his new Storybook Factory dvd. It is teaching him concepts of print like punctuation (commas mean a short pause etc...) and how to read more fluidly. Since we got the dvd he is now reading to me from his kindergarten level reader books [[ASIN:0763620629 Brand New Readers Red Set (Brand New Readers)]] The Learn to Read dvd also teaches the concept of taking your time to do a job right instead of rushing through it and making a mess of things. A wonderful product for anyone looking to give their preschooler a head start or help a struggling older reader.

I highly recommend this program. It's great for my 4 and 6 year old children. It's giving them a jump start on learning how to read and recognize their sounds and their words. It's very fun and very Interactive. I highly recommend it.

Doesn't Teach How To Read, But Works To Improve It
Verified purchase
The ideal audience for this movie are those who already know how to read individual words, but have not yet combined them into sentences to make a story.

THE MOVIE
The Leap kids are filming a movie of the classic story "The Three Little Pigs" and Tad is asked to narrate. He starts somewhat slow as he struggles to read the words of the script. He's then instructed how to read in a normal speaking voice and as the words are being read, they show up along the bottom bar of the tv screen so your child can follow along. By the end of the movie, the words are moving so quickly across the screen that it would be hard for any beginner to keep up.

SUMMARY
While the story-line is entertaining and the principal of how Tad is taught to read is correct, the beginning reader is easily lost in the rate of speed the lines are read which can be frustrating. My 3-year-old son loves the earlier movies: [[ASIN:B001TKUXUC LeapFrog: Letter Factory]], [[ASIN:B001U7NW20 LeapFrog: Talking Words Factory]] and [[ASIN:B00361XWDC LeapFrog: Word Caper]], but at this point he watches this movie just for the enjoyment.

Leapfrog learning dvds are great. Just when you're not sure if they're listening or know any of it they just it out of " nowhere ". And they don't know they're being tricked into learning cuz they enjoy watching it.
