Toy Review: Leapfrog TAG - revisited

No more than 2 weeks after I posted my semi-warm review of Leapfrog's TAG system that my daughter took to it. *shrug* I thought I had given her enough time to play with it and either like it or not. Guess that's what happens when you're five.

I still don't believe she's using it in the ideal way. She's letting the pen read to her, but since she really only has one book, she's hearing the same thing over and over. As we all know, repetition leads to learning, so let's cross our cyber-fingers. She still loves the games and the hidden sounds.

I am also keeping my eye out for those National Geographic cards. She's getting a set once I spot them!

Okay, full disclosure here- I'm the one who helped connect you with LeapFrog to review the Tag and I'm a friend of yours- I appreciated your honest review, but I was surprised that wasn't more of a hit. I think the Tag is so cool!

I appreciate the update. And as far as correct use, I know my boys always thought it was a hoot to take quizzes on their old LeapPad Jr. and purposely answer the questions incorrectly in order to receive the lowest possible scores. They act like idiots to prove their brilliance? I don't get it.

Anyway, glad she's having fun with it. I'm sure the way she interacts with it will evolve.

Book Review: Wolfpack by Abby Wambach

Less than a year ago, Abby Wambach took the stage at Barnard's commencement and gave a speech that shook many, including myself, to the core . Her speech went viral and I made the above image in order to share the highlights of her speech. Earlier this month Abby released the speech in book form. Wolfpack : How to Come Together, Unleash Our Power, and Change the Game is short (less than 100 pages) but is much more than just her speech . You get a peek into how the speech came together and why she said everything. And because the book is short and is an expanded speech, it moves quickly. I feel that it moves with the same ferocity that Abby use to move down a soccer field. And you might find yourself cheering as she takes you through the story. Abby has always been one of my favorite players. The way she ran amok on the pitch was exactly the way I felt I played sports. Never caring how you looked and giving it your all. Leaving it all on the field. When she retired from socc
