I recently had the opportunity to review Bugsby the Book Worm Reading System by VTech, along with two additional books.
Bugsby Reading System
My 3-year old granddaughter started speaking quite early and has an excellent vocabulary. Whereas her mom used a pacifier that we threw away when she was two, ‘Lil Moomette sucks her thumb. I think it’s a harder habit to break than the pacifier. We’ve noticed, however, that due to herthumb-sucking, ‘Lil Moomette has difficulty pronouncing certain words.
My granddaughter enjoys being read to, whether she’s visiting at my house, or at home before bedtime.
Save The Chimp (3-5) – Teaches Letters; Phonics; Rhyming; Alphabetical Order; Reading Comprehension
Bugsby and the Magical Museum (5-7) – Teaches Adjectives; Spelling; Consonants; Punctuation; Reading Comprehension
The Bugsby Reading System by Vtech is recommended by certified Reading Specialist Dr. Deborah Sharp Libby, Ph.D, and has received the Children’s Technology Review Editor’s Choice Award for 2009 for Excellence in Design.
Children are able to read along and interact with their favorite characters while at the same time building early reading skills. Bugsby enables the kids to build reading skills through play while developing reading comprehension, sentence structure, word recognition and more.
What we liked about the Bugsby Reading System for ‘Lil Moomette is that it reinforces the pronunciation of words that we encourage my granddaughter to repeat. I grew up learning to read by “see it – say it – spell it.”
