ISBN 1586050028 - LeapFrog's LeapPad is a fantastic tool that really makes learning an enjoyable, fun experience and Richard Scarry's Busy Town characters are an absolutely perfect match. From cover to cover, this book is bright and engaging.
Activities on 24 pages teach Opposites, Seasons, even Manners, and more. The text is kept simple - we are, after all, just learning here - but the illustrations fill the pages with characters children know and love. The cartridge adds to the learning experience with the ability to hear the words on the page, making it simple for a child to learn on their own.
The book, the cartridge and the LeapPad are all needed for this book to fully serve its purpose, which is a minor negative. Still, the interactive aspects far outweigh that. Scarry's characters are so recognizable that it's a lot like learning from friends and kids will like that. The book seems a bit slim at first, but it's so jam-packed with good stuff that it turns out 24 pages is perfect.
