Looking For a Great New Way to Encourage Your Children to Read? Check Out the V-Tech V Reader - Review and Givaway

12:00 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma






I may not be the most organized mom around but there are few things that I make a point to schedule for my kids, and one of the most important things is reading. Oscar just has just learned to this last year and he is so excited by it. His enthusiasm is rubbing off on my middle child, Benji, because he wants to be able to do everything that his big brother can do. It is really nice to see them both sitting on the couch together looking at a book. I also encourage Oscar to read to his little brothers because not only does it encourage his brothers to read but its also great practice for him.




When I was asked by The Motherhood to join in on their VTech V.Reader campaign and become a part of the VTech Voices Community I was more than excited. I knew that the boys would love it and I love encouraging reading in any way possible. I love reading to the boys but sometimes with our crazy schedules its not always possible. I love that the V.Reader is versatile, Oscar can practice his reading and spelling skills and Benji can have a story read to him. Of course, they both like playing the games!

VTech V.Reader Highlights
  • Interactive stories with touchscreen play
  • Great stories featuring your child's favorite characters
  • Storytelling comes alive with great animation and sound
  • Ideal for kids that are learning to read
  • Perfect for kids 3-7
  • Downloadable games will be available soon!

Oscar and Benji were super excited to try out this new reading system. I was excited to see it in action too. Below is a video of our very first experience with the VTech V.Reader - bear with me in the video, you can tell that we are all discovering how it works.




The Review

Overall I think that the V.Reader is a fantastic, engaging, fun toy that will be a very helpful tool for getting my boys excited about reading. I definitely recommend it to parents of children that are anywhere from preschool age to through second, possibly third grade.

Pros
  • Lightweight
  • I love that it is so interactive with the child
  • Offers stories with characters my kids are familiar with
  • Has a volume control switch
  • Easy to use and operate
  • Very engaging for both boys, neither one wanted to put it down
  • Love the Bookmark button, its really helpful for bathroom breaks or other reasons that they would need to leave it and come back to the V.Reader
Cons
  • The cover is great however neither one of my boys use it because they like having access to the screen at all times. Plus it gets tons of fingerprints on it which drives me crazy.
  • It is only meant for one child. The name and avatar is meant for one user. This is an area of contention at our house because Benji wouldn't even consider playing it unless he could change it to his name and avatar. Each time it gets played by a different user they change it, it would be nice if it was meant for more than one child.
  • I am worried about the durability of the product. We have purchased other great VTech items in the past because we love VTech but some of them have not been able to stand up against my rough and tumble boys. I am worried that after a few accidental drops and it won't work as well as it should. It looks like it should be more durable for a toy in this particular age group.

Family Reading Night Challenge

In video you can see that the boys and I are all cozied up on the couch, it is our favorite place to read books. Not only is it comfortable but we can all fit!

All though I encourage reading in our household we have never made a big event out of it. I think that it would be fun to have a Family Reading Night, with the challenge being coming up with some fun places or creative ways to celebrate Family Reading Night. Maybe this week we can go to the beach and bring some favorite books and the V.Reader along. Or for a night in I think it might be fun to build a Reading Fort in our family room and enjoy reading in the fort!

I could definitely use your help with some ideas. What are your creative Family Reading Night Ideas?

    I encourage my grandson to read by letting him pick out books at the library and the bookstore. I also read to him.

    We do a couple of things to encourage reading. One is to create a story - each person tells part of a story. The next person tells another part of the story and so on. When we read, we each take turns reading a page. The kids love hearing the adults add emotion to the words of the main character.

    Nichole Seiler: we read 2-3 stories usaully every night, unless there is a vacation or late night. My daughter usually picks the stories she wants read. I think it is good for them to pick the stories because it keeps them more interested, especially when young.

    My daughter is going into 1st grade, she is just starting to really get into reading. We read a Family book everynight, and then she takes out her beginner books and reads to us. Great bonding we have, and we r so proud of her.

    We don't have a family reading night, but do read to our children nightly in bed. I would think with older kids that a campout inside would be fun. Either a "real" tent, or blanket tent, some sleeping bags, some finger snacks and jammies!

    We read every night before bed and sometimes daddy joins in the fun too> I try to make the stories come to life by acting out the characters but having a V.reader will really bring the stories to life in a fun way.

    My kids have been watching me reading more books lately and they are showing more interest in books as a result. I have also been encouraging my ones who know how to read to read to the younger ones books that they loved when they were their age. vidomich(at)yahoo(dot)com

    We encourage reading by getting the whole family involved in story time and each person takes a different character in the story to read.

    If I act a little enthusiastic about reading myself I think it helps.

  193. Mysharona said...

    we do it by acting out the book as they read it.

  194. Alice said...

    trying to find subjects that they really interested in helps

    I think it s important for the adult to sit down reading first to show the child that reading is okay and can be fun.

    We go to our local library and kids get to pick out their favorite books and we have a set time every evening for reading.

    This may sound hokey, but we like to have themed reading nights once a month or so. For example we will all read pirate books and than we will dress like pirates eat pirate food and sometimes end the night with a pirate based movie...Thanks for the chance.
