      Comments about Hot Dots® Jr. Let's Master Pre-K Reading:

      My 2.5 year old son LOVES this! He is in love with the alphabet already but once I gave him this book and pen he is addicted! He loves using the Ace the Dog pen. I like that it tells him if the answer is correct or incorrect. This allows him to learn without me constantly saying no. I appreciate that the books are spiral bound...makes it more durable for excited little hands. My son loves taking these books in the car. It is an activity he can do in his carseat and doesn't make a mess! This is a great way for kids to learn without them feeling like you are forcing learning on them. Tools that teach in a creative way will always be a win in my book! My son isn't in preschool yet but he will be way ahead of the class when he starts. Thanks Educational Insights!

        Comments about Hot Dots® Jr. Let's Master Pre-K Reading:

        My preschool son is not one who really likes to sit down to learn. He LOVES this product. He really thinks he is playing a game, loves playing with the dog. I love it because he is learning reading activities that are geared towards his age. The puppy pen really makes this a hit with him. Glad I found something to help him learn and additional books for other subjects can be bought. Being a stay at home mom getting him to do educational activities is tough, but not with this!

                Love this product! Great way to help my son with learning to read, all while having fun. Also, great product to travel with and take on the road. Small enough to fit in a small back pack without it being to bulky and taking up to much space. Really helps with learning letters. Overall, very happy with the product.

                Both of my girls loved this when it was working. The light up eyes and noises were great. Stopped working about 2 and a half months after we opened it. Changed batteries, wiped the tip, still nothing. Of course it being a gift,the purchaser couldn't remember where they bought it or if they had retained a receipt. Wasteful, I have the books but nothing to use them with. Very dissappointed

                  My 4-year-old granddaughter loves using the "Ace" talking pen to discover the answers. I like that it can be muted so it can be used as a quiet activity. Green or red lights indicate whether a choice is correct or incorrect. I received Hot Dots Jr. as a gift but I will definitely recommend this product to others. I would love to find more Hot Dot Jr. books to add to my collection.
