My favorite toy company, Leapfrog, just announced that they have teamed up with the Department of Health and Human Services to provide talking books about health to Afghan women. The books will allow the women who cannot read to learn also.

The snippet of the book I heard on NPR said, "Touch a picture that shows what to do with muddy water"... I couldn't tell what the answer was... Now I'm curious... Either way, it's a noble cause and I'm sure it will not only have an impact on their health, but I think the women will find it a bit fun too, as most Leapfrog products tend to be (I still chuckle when I think of Mya scanning her tummy, boop, boop, boop).
