100 Key Words for Early Readers Unique to the Learn to Read Collection, each magical Ultra eBook features 100 key words like “fast” and “fun” that include: short vowels, blends, long vowel pairs, silent letters and more.

Touch a word to see letters highlight as it is sounded out. This helps kids develop an understanding of letter-sound relationships—the building blocks of phonics. Expand vocabulary with a visual dictionary. Vocabulary knowledge is closely linked to reading comprehension. Tap highlighted words for a kid-friendly definition and see a simple animation that shows a word's meaning or how it's used in the story. Three Auto-Adjusting Reading Levels The Learn to Read 2 Ultra eBook Adventure Stories enhances the way kids learn to read. With three reading levels in each story that adjust automatically kids can read at their pace. If they get stuck on a word, they can drag the stylus across the word to hear the word sounded out. Three levels of text in each Ultra eBook vary in complexity based on how kids perform in comprehension activities. To support reading development, text must be at an optimal level of difficulty. Studies have shown that children who learn to read and write early on are more likely to experience overall success in school. Seven Action-Packed Activities Each Ultra eBook in the Learn to Read Collection features engaging activities including Shake & Drag, where readers complete short sections of the story by filling in the blanks with words that they shake out of the sentences. This activity aims to teach kids to identify the word and its logical location in the story. Designed to encourage kids to think more deeply about the story and assess their level of understanding, performance on comprehension activities determines a child's suggested reading level. Ultra eBooks have integrated mini games that are not only fun, but help move the story forward. As kids play they actively experience what they are reading, bringing stories to life in a whole new way. What's In The Box?

There are two stories in this catriage. One is in the Jungle, and the other is the Ocean. And there are games in the stories, teaching letters. Catriage is made in Indonesia. $9.50 is a fair price for the game. I won't pay 20 bucks on it as the stories are somewhat short.
I got this because we got my 6 year old the LeapPad Explorer, but I was afraid it would be too "young" for him, so my plan was to allow my 3 year old to play with it. My 6 year old actually enjoys it. There is more than just one adventure on the story, which is nice. I'm glad that I purchased it, and I'm pleased with the low pricing that Amazon has on the Ultra eBooks, compared to other stores and LeapFrog.com
ALL of these Ultra E-Books clearly say both on the product itself and in the description that they are only compatible with LeapPad. Don't drag the rating down on a great item just becaue you failed to read the decription.These books are great and Amazon has them for a great price!
