Introduce literature concepts like character, setting, & plot while teach reading comprehension skills

A great way to introduce literature concepts like character, setting and plot, plus teach reading comprehension skills! Features six stories on CD with printed books that match three of them. All stories on CD include multiple activities in addition to the talking book. The activities focus on plot prediction, character recognition and reading comprehension. The original book illustrations are also shown on screen with text. Students mouse-click to have the stories read aloud with the corresponding text highlighted.

The printed books are appropriate for a wide age range with reading levels varying from first to third grade. Since they match the CD stories exactly, the books compliment computer activities and are great to share with friends and family.
