Reviews:

CD-ROM Today, June 1996

"She's no Little Orphan Annie, but Sheila Rae - a little mouse who sings and dances her way through Living Books' latest project - is similarly gifted. Many children will know Sheila Rae from the Kevin Henkes' book Sheila Rae, The Brave (a paper back copy of which is included with the CD-ROM).

"It's obvious Sheila has made up her mind that musical theater is her true calling. Kids can watch her unabashedly pound the boards while a narrator reads the tale aloud in either English or Spanish, or they can interact with the story. (Although some kids will become frustrated waiting for Sheila to settle down so they can use their mouse).

"In either case, youngsters will reap the benefits of Sheila's vocal lessons as she spontaneously burst into song as the spirit (or the plot) moves her."

Computer Shopper, July 1996

"Sheila Rae, an intrepid mouse who learns a valuable lesson about bravery and fear when her younger sister comes to her rescue.

"In addition to beautifully illustrated storybook pages, enhanced with sound effects and animations, this Living Book features seven sing-along songs in English or Spanish. Musical numbers are presented as animated scenes, complete with lyrics that are highlighted and transformed into pictures or exaggerated word forms as they are sung. The animated transformations help beginning readers associate a written word with its pronunciation, while turning reading into a playful experience."
