LeapFrog partners with Kristi Yamaguchi to encourage early reading

Techstination feature for Friday, March 20, 2015

LeapFrog gives a jump to early childhood reading.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   It’s hard to believe, but LeapFrog is celebrating its 20th anniversary of using technology to help little ones learn, with what it calls the 20/20 Reading Challenge.   It’s a partnership with Olympic champion Kristi Yamaguchi’s Always Dream foundation.   LeapFrog’s Director of Learning Jody LeVos….

“So the 20/20 Reading Challenge is all about families pledging to read to their kids just 20 minutes a day.  And when they pledge to do that, LeapFrog will donate 20 books to Kristi Yamaguchi’s Always Dream Foundation.”

How can families participate…

“They can go to  It’s a really simple pledge form.  They just fill that out.  And when they do that, they are pledging to read 20 minutes a day and LeapFrog will donate 20 books to the foundation.”

Which inspires underserved children through innovative reading programs.   You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
