Today, I want to talk about reading. When I was a kid, I was the little girl sitting on the bench at recess, with her nose buried in a book. I absolutely love reading, and as an adult, I have hundreds and hundreds of books.
It seems that my 4 year old daughter, Sophie, has inherited an early love of reading from her Mommy. (Not that we're complaining, of course!) She is already reading, and better than most 8 or 9 year olds I've known. It's pretty crazy, actually, considering a lot of it was self-taught.
So since Sophie is already very interested in the wonderful world of reading, we are always looking for products to help her develop her reading skills. When we first discovered the Sparkup Magical Book Reader, we were super-excited! After all, anything that claims to be magical has got to be worth a shot, right?
This product is a special device that is clipped onto a book...ANY illustrated children's book, to be exact...and it brings these books to life. You record stories, page by page, in your own voice. Then the Sparkup records it in your voice, and thanks to the camera in the unit, it learns to recognize each book by the illustrations on the page. This means if you record "Cat In the Hat" today, the unit will ALWAYS recognize the story, and it can be played in the future. How great is that?!
Check out this brief video that shows exactly how the Sparkup Magical Book Reader works:
Oh, just so you know, if you place your Sparkup order before December 15, 2014, you'll receive these 2 free books, too!
Whether you or your spouse travel frequently and want the kids to still enjoy your "presence", or you're a grandparent who wants to give the littles in your life an extra special present, definitely check out the Sparkup Magical Book Reader. Reading has never been so much fun!
