Interprog Release JHS Text for LeapPad®

Interprog have tamed up with Tokyo Shoseki to create a version of the "Junior Horizon - Hi, English! Book1" textbook for the LeapPad® interactive player. Aimed at 3rd-4th grade elementary school students, the new book covers all 19 chapters from the original textbook in 38 pages. It goes on sale from October 20, and retails for ¥5,040 (player sold separately). The sales target is to have it in 1,000 schools in the first year. Book2, aimed at 5th-6th graders is planned for a spring 2005 release.

Special books and sound cartridges are mounted on the LeapPad® player and an attached pen is used to play games and songs, do quizzes and many other activities. The developer, LeapFrog Enterprises, has a wide range of educational materials for almost all levels, from pre-school to high school, and have sold over 8 million players worldwide. Interprog first started selling it in Japan with a phonics program in 2003. Tokyo Shoseki is one of Japan's largest publisher of school textbooks.
