If you read any reviews please read this one it could save you....
Helpful hint: download companion audio. Not the audio books. Audio books cost extra money, and it don't make it work to the touch, it just means you can press play on the pen and the pen will read the whole book. Companion audio makes it work to the touch, and doesn't cost anything.
1) create leapfrog account
2) plug pen to computer, download that nonsense.
3) unplug pen, open the first book, turn on the pen. Tap the little purple button, it will say "have your parent download companion audio for this book" or something along those lines.
4) plug back in the pen, a thing will pop up saying download companion audio for this book, click okay.
5) test book before moving on to the next book. Repeat steps 3, and 4 for all ten books.
Jessica was stupid and downloaded audio books and spent $20 she didn't need to spend. Don't be like jessica. You are welcome.
Oh, also this works fantastic. My only complaint is each pen only holds ten books, so if you love it and want more books you either have to regularly log onto your computer and switch them out, or buy another pen for ten more books. I personally, will be going the lazy parent way and buying another pen. Download is a pain in the ass. I'm too tired for all that nonsense.
Once again, you are welcome.

Broke my Mac!
It does not work with my desktop Mac! I tried to download it two times and it told me I had to restart my computer so I did but the my $2500 computer wouldnâ€™t turn back on!! Like at all! After two days of trying and working with Apple they figured out that the LeapReader is actually what broke my computer. So I definitely donâ€™t recommend this leap reader!

It helps loads with reading comprehension and my boys love the fun stories
The set up on the computer is a minor hassle but once you get this going it is an integral part of a child's learning. I've purchased this twice. Once when my 10yr old was in kindergarten and again now that my 5yr old is in kindergarten. It helps loads with reading comprehension and my boys love the fun stories.

My almost 4 year old got this bundle for Christmas. It was easy to set up and seems like it'll hold a lot of books. It's easy to use and he loves being able to touch the icon to read the whole page to him. Makes reading books at bedtime a lot more fun for him.

Needs some improvements
Set up was a pain, and one of the books didnâ€™t download after an hour of work. Iam not worried about buying more books because of how difficult set up was. The books take two hands to keep open making it very difficult for young hands to navigate reading and holding the book open and turning pages. Needs some improvements!

Works great, but having to download each and every book it comes with and any others you buy is a huge pain..the ones in the package should be preloaded.

I find it is a great incentive to help my reluctant reader practice her sight words and reading skills. Just the fact that she uses it daily is helping her to improve her skills, and she loves using it. Hooray!

Cool learning experience!
Great learning for a five year old and even when you touch the pictures on the book it has a sound or tells what object is. It's pretty neat..
