Ever look at your kids and wonder how in the heck they grew up so fast? That’s how I feel right now with Jaxson, who turns 3 in a few months. He’s my youngest so I can’t help but think of him as a baby still. Except he’s not.
He’s growing almost to heavy to carry. He’s talking a mile a minute. And everyday he surprises me by how much he’s learned from the world around him. It shouldn’t be a surprise to me, now that he knows most of his letters, that he is “reading” to me. When we read books together, Jaxson will point to words and ask me what it says. Even though he’s not yet three, all this tells me he’s ready to learn more. I’m no tiger mom. Just a following my kid’s cues.

As soon as it arrived, Jaxson tore into the LeapFrog Tag Get Ready for Kindergarten book.  He was amazed by the magic of the Tag Reader. He immediately sat down, flipped through the pages and tapped the Tag to everything he could, just to hear what would happen. He would tap a picture or word and then hold it to his ear to listen to the Tag. Super cute.

The Get Ready for Kindergarten book is a great introduction to kindergarten concepts for preschoolers. Each spread of pages tackles concepts such as ABCs, vowels, feelings, patterns, counting, adding, even seasons and months. That’s only the first half of the book. I was impressed by what was covered.

Like with any Tag book, your child can just touch the pictures and words on the page or they can start a game by tapping one of the star icons on the bottom of the page. Since Jaxson is still young, he doesn’t stay as interested very long on each page. That’s okay with me because I want him to have fun.

We sat down to try out the book together and Jaxson already has his favorite pages and pictures to read. He spent the most time on the Monster Mathematics where he learns to count and add using candy. What kid could resist candy?

Get Ready For Kindergarten also covers science and social studies concepts as well. A very well done, comprehensive book. Each page has two levels of “games” so as your child masters one level, they can advance to the next. The book retails for $13.99 on Leapfrog. Sign up for their newsletters so you don’t miss any sales and special discount codes. You’ll need a Tag Reader in order to use the book to its full capabilities.

We’re definitely going to use this book often as Jaxson begins to master kindergarten concepts.
