interactive book software
Roo is adorable, Tigger erasable, Rabbit is ornery and Pooh is just Pooh. We know them all well. From book, to video and now to our computer screens. "It's just like watching a video, only there are games to play too!" reported a 5 year-old tester. In Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too the classic tale of our favorite inhabitants of the Hundred Acre Wood is retold in interactive (and entertaining) form.
As with Disney's other animated storybooks, Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too features a series of screens, like pages in a book, with text that highlights as it is read, and illustrations that animate as they are explored. Four of the pages additionally lead to special interactive activities that can also be accessed from the "Pick a Page" contents screen.
Aside from the above, the educational value of Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too is not high, although youngsters do use memory, listening, and problem-solving skills in completing the special activities, and three levels of difficulty allow kids of various abilities to remain challenged. Users can choose to play a game of tic-tac-toe, a game of concentration or a game similar to "Simon", or they can choose to traverse a maze, which at times requires intricate planning in order to succeed.
Our testers also enjoyed the maze. At the higher levels Pooh acquires tools to help him navigate the maze. Among these are a shovel, for clearing snow drifts, skates to cross icy puddles, and a balloon to carry him aloft over ditches. Watching Pooh sail through the air at the end of the balloon string not only amuses, it compels kids to repeat the activity over and over again.
