"Five playful early-reading activities capture a yound
child's imagination in Bailey's Book House. The program features Bailey,
an animated cat, and several of his neighborhood friends, including Harley
Horse, Sammy Snake, and Millie Cow. Visitors explore Bailey's world by using
the mouse to click on interesting objects, and selected items are often
gateways to exciting learning opportunities.
"For example, choosing Bailey's typewritier takes children
to the Letter Machine. An open-ended option lets them explore alphabetically
arranged letters on a computer-like keyboard. Each letter is associated with a
particular object (C for caterpillar, for instance). Once an object is
selected, words for it appear onscreen and are highlighted as they are read. An
amusing animation reinforces the learning concept.
"The Kid Cards section invites youngsters to design and
print holiday cards, invitations, and special greetings using clip art and
letter stickers as decoration. And in Read-a-Rhyme, your kids can create their
own Mother Goose rhyme by choosing a new ending to an old favorite."
"Bailey's Book House combines high-quality graphic
animations with digitized sound effects, music, and speech for an engaging
learning experience. It develops basic language concepts, encourages thinking,
and promotes creativity. Kids play with letters and written words, and have fun
as they strengthen early literacy skills. This is one electronic neighborhood
your kids will want to visit again."
