SpongeBob’s so excited! He's planned the Best Day Ever, doing his favorite things: making Krabby Patties, practicing karate with Sandy, going jellyfishing with Patrick and watching Squidward's clarinet recital. Use your reading and listening skills to jump in and spend the day in Bikini Bottom!
The story is written at three different levels, progressing from simple text to more complex words and sentences. The level automatically adjusts for just the right reading challenge.
Six built-in activities reinforce reading comprehension and word recognition skills. Three additional mini-games let the reader take part in the action.
A visual dictionary helps new readers build their vocabulary. Children can tap highlighted words for a fun pop-up with a kid-friendly text definition. Some words have an animation to help convey the word's meaning or how it's used in the story.
See it, say it, sound it—children can touch words in the story with a finger or the stylus to hear them sounded out.
Plus, children can use the built-in microphone on LeapPad Explorer™ learning tablets to narrate the story themselves!
"Matching children with optimal text levels is key to supporting reading development, so we’ve designed the SpongeBob Ultra eBook especially for readers who are building more independence and confidence as readers. It features longer sentences and more complex vocabulary across three levels of text that adjust based on a child’s performance. The built-in comprehension-based activities prompt growing readers to make more predictions and logical inferences as they respond to questions about the story." Carolyn J., LeapFrog Learning Expert

Phonics rules can help children pay attention to specific spelling patterns that words have in common and use this knowledge to sound out new words.
The larger their vocabulary, the easier it is for children to comprehend what they read and hear and communicate with others.
Listening and Reading Comprehension
As children develop comprehension of books read aloud or independently, they explore the uses and functions of written language. They begin to construct meaning, eventually applying critical skills to make inferences and draw conclusions.
