4 stars from CD-ROM Today

Once upon a time... there were lots of interactive storybooks. But none that compared to Reader Rabbit's Reading Development Library. You see, no other interactive books develop reading skills like these do. Each of these interactive books has been specially targeted to specific levels of children's reading development - an ideal way to develop comprehension, build self-confidence, and foster a love of reading.

In Level 2 of Reading Development Library, you'll get two classic stories - Jack and the Beanstalk and City Mouse, Country Mouse - each one told from the unique points of view of three different characters.

Each reading level in the Reading Development Library is graduated in difficulty and builds upon the others. As children advance in reading skill, they progress to the next reading level, where vocabulary from previous levels is repeated to reinforce learning and new words are introduced to expand children's vocabulary.

Each time they play, children choose from two fun-filled, animated storybook classics - Jack and the Beanstalk and City Mouse, Country Mouse. Then, children select the storybook character they want to tell the tale. With three characters telling different points of view in each story, it's like having six unique tales in one product. And the different perspectives enrich your child's thinking and listening skills.

With two storybooks, multiple points of view, delightful animation, lifelike speech, and lots of playful variety, children will be engrossed in reading and learning for many fun-filled hours.

Plus... Three Fun-filled Activities!

Express it. Children help write letters to their favorite storybook characters. And every letter gets a personal response.

Match it. In Story Match, children build vocabulary skills by matching key story words to pictures.

Order it. In Story Order, children develop sequencing skills by placing story events in the correct order.

Reviews:

CD-ROM Today, October 1995

"The Learning Company quotes a target age group of 5- to 7-year-olds for these titles, but that range could be easily extended: Younger children will enjoy the read-aloud attributes and the animation, while older, struggling readers will enjoy working on their skills in the context of these well-told tales."

"Level 2 has a few more words on each page than Level 1. It also offers a few more activities. Besides those differences, both discs are the same."

"Reader Rabbit's Reading Development Library is a simple but enjoyable way for young readers to develop word attack, word sequencing, and comprehension skills. More options could have been provided (voice-recording, reading speed, print) but probably at the expense of its childlike simplicity."
