The LeapPad Learn to Read Collection has introduced "Adventure Stories," an interactive Ultra eBook for children aged four to six years. As the series' name suggests, games and programs in this series focus on literacy skills important for pre- and emerging readers. As children explore the games and stories of "Jungle Journey" and "Ocean Odyssey," they will encounter and learn 100 key words. They will also learn phonics rules, sight words, listening and reading comprehension skills, and decoding skills. The eBook features three progressively difficult levels ranging from simple text to more complex sentence and vocabulary. As the narrator reads the story, respective words are highlighted on the page for easy following. Children can even drag the stylus over each letter of a word to hear it sounded out. Children and parents can also record their own voices reading the story. A variety of learning games are interspersed throughout the interactive story, which includes a variety of touch-activated sounds and animations. The fun games, catchy songs, and brightly colored animations will engage children for hours in this delightfully interactive book.
