This “first interactive storybook” proves that sometimes simplicity is best, especially when trying to attract and keep the attention of pre- and early readers. Accompanied by a large printed storybook,Reading Fun is set up much like other interactive books. Each screen replicates a page in the book. Also included on each screen are clickable surprises and a link to either an activity screen or a sing-a-long screen.
The story itself features amiable young Puppy and his many animal buddies. Summer is ending, and it’s time for school -- a totally new experience for Puppy. Fortunately, he is delighted with the experience, and the learning, new friends and fun that it provides. The story culminates with a surprise birthday party for Puppy. Happiness and good cheer abound, school is the greatest. . .
Stars appear when the mouse is passed over an object that animates. A star in a box indicates an optional activity, while a musical note indicates a sing-a-long song. Each activity includes a green ‘play’ button allowing unlimited game-play, and a red ‘stop’ button to return the user to the story.
