Hi Everyone,

I have the best readers in the world! I'm not saying that just to flatter you, I mean it. You know I sent out my MBA online survey last Friday and the responses were not very good initially. Therefore, I sent out a follow-up email to request your help again. Since then, many had responded to my online survey and some even wrote to me to wish me luck on my studies. I'm really touched and would like to take this opportunity to thank you again. 

BTW, for those who participated in the survey, I hope you like the "Helping Your Child Get Ready For School" eBook as a token of appreciation from me. And for those who would like to help, the online survey is still open till March 12, 2004. Take care and have a great week!

Leappad
By LeapFrog
Average Customer Review - 4.5 Stars
Recommended Age: 4 - 7 years

This talking book comes with an interactive "magic pen" that works like a hand-held computer mouse pointer. Children can opt to turn the paper pages and listen to the story read with different voices for each character. Or they can interrupt the read-aloud session to play with the magic pen (permanently attached with a wire). They can point the pen tip to any word on a page and hear it pronounced, or touch a picture and hear a sound effect (such as "Strike one!" for the baseball bat)

Children touch, play, and learn with interactive Flip Books that feature a story on one side and activities, games, and music on the other. Touch the special Flip Book or Phonics Bus game board with the magic pen to hear words, music, and sound effects

Autism Claims Attention at Schools
