Interactive Learning Moments
Play and learn format offers interactive learning moments throughout the story to facilitate comprehension. I especially like the emotion questions that help young children think about how a particular character might be feeling in the story as it helps them learn to put themselves in another person’s shoes. For instance, when Hansel and Gretel are lost in the woods, the narrator asks, “How do you think Hansel and Gretel are feeling right now?” This is particularly relevant for young children learning to verbalise the emotions that others are feeling.
Read Along Feature
Story text can be turned “on” for children who are learning to follow along with the words or “off” for younger children just enjoying the story.
