"The story is told in pictures as much as words, making it an ideal title for children to re-write as a way to build their own storytelling skills" - Digital Storytime
Key features include:
★ 31 pages of beautiful illustrations
Three ways to read the book.
★ "Read to me" - listen to the narrated story while the text is displayed Karaoke style. After the narration finishes on a page the child can interact with objects till they are ready to move to the next page.
★ "Auto Play" - same as "Read to Me" except the page advances automatically once the narration is finished. Useful for those long car rides when you want the child to have a complete book experience.
★ "Read myself" - There is no narration but the child can touch a word to hear it being spoken aloud. This is designed for older children who want to experience the book at their own pace.
Features on each page
★ Professional narration
★ Image and word association vocabulary builder - when an image is touched the associated word is spoken and the written word displayed.
★ Karaoke effect - when a word is spoken during narration then the word is highlighted.
★ Touch a word to hear it being spoken.
