Review:
"Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that Type" is a must-have for those who own the Leapster Tag system. An engaging story and charming illustrations provide the framework for a variety of ways to learn and interact, including total book narration (with audio prompts when it's time to turn the page), line narration, word identification, games and end-of-book review activities. The game-like visual and audio prompts on each spread encourage the reader to become actively involved in thinking about the story on multiple levels while also teaching skills such as word/line identification, identification of parts of a book (author, illustrator, dedication, etc.), counting, prediction and emotion recognition.

After reaching the end of the book, the child can play the review activity in which he or she responds to questions about the story by finding and touching the correct answer in the book. The best thing about this product may be the subtlety of the learning experience, presented in the context of a story with a variety of fun and entertaining activities to keep a child's interest. Details like the ability to touch the Tag reader to different animals and hear sound effects make this a book that will be read and played over and over again.
