Leapfrog products have been a favourite of ours for years because of the educational and innovative products they offer for children.
We were so happy to hear about and get to try their new 100 words book in English and Chinese which is a touch and learn book for kids from 12 months up.
The Leapfrog Interactive book introduces children to their first 100 words in both English AND Chinese simultaneously just by touching the pages.
Kids can learn colours, animals, food, body parts and more. Just press on the page and listen to the words spoken by a native speaker.
Change the language from English to Chinese and kids can repeat the words in either language.

Touch and Learn
The Leapfrog 100 Words Book is so simple to use for toddlers and young kids. Just turn the page and touch the items to listen to the words. Switch the language to hear the translation. It is really that easy.
3 Learning Modes
The first mode is learning and hearing vocabulary. Just touch the page to hear what the object is called. It may be an animal or body part, a colour, or food.
The second mode is learning facts about the object. For example on the animals page “This bear is brown grrrr”, or on the colours page “Blue like the sky”.
The third mode is sounds. On the Mealtime page if you press the bottle, you hear a baby cry, or on the Pets page if you press the animal you hear the sound they make.
12 Learning Categories
There are 100 words for kids to learn in 12 categories including: Pets, Animals, Fruits, Food, Mealtime, Clothes, Colours, My Body, Activities, Outside, Vehicles, Opposites. The book gives a broad introduction to the first words for kids.
The Leapfrog 100 words book can change between 2 languages meaning kids will be immersed in bilingual play. Kids can learn in English, and then switch to hear the words in Chinese.
With Chinese being one of the most spoken languages in the world, it is fast becoming a popular language to learn for English speakers.
Included with the book is a 32 page Learning Activity Guide which provides parents with hands on activities and teaching tips to get the most out of this bilingual book for kids.
Benefits of learning a second language
Speaking a second language has numerous benefits. Sure there are the social advantages and of course travel, but there are also lots of brain benefits too. For example, according to numerous studies, kids who are learning two languages at once are able to multi-task and have better problem-solving skills than kids who only speak one.
Learning a second language while young is so much easier than learning as an adult. The critical period for languages is before 7 years old. This is when children are able to distinguish better between sounds and therefore, they are able to imitate and pronounce them more easily.
The Leapfrog 100 Words Book can be used from about 12 months old onwards, so it is the perfect age to get kids learning young. However, it is also great for older children up to 5 years or more.
Fantastic Learning Tool for Young Kids
The Leapfrog 100 Words book English-Chinese is a fantastic learning tool for young children. Not only will little ones learn a broad range of vocabulary in English, they will learn a second language too.
