This is an interactive e-reader. You can set the reader to read To your student, the student (or anyone) can record their own voice reading the story, or you can set it to silent. There are short action clips throughout the story. There are also vocabulary that pops up and the student has to find the word on that page of the story. I wish this occurred on every page, but it's more like every 3rd page. About 1/2 way through the 'book' there is an interactive game, where the student spells the vocabulary words or other words from the story. At the end of the book, the student can make their own story by using the vocabulary words and dropping them back into the story - they can choose to recreate the actual story, or they can jumble them up to make a silly story! The Sea World apps are awesome in that they teach about the animals, habitats and conservation!
We have used 3 of the 8 or so apps. We have the Sea World, Transformers and Rabbit Ears. The only reason i didn't give a 5 stars is because you have to have a different app for each book type. What i mean is, for Kindle, lets say, you can download just about any type of book. But with these readers you get anywhere from 3 to 6 books in each app. So i took away 1/2 a star for that one thing, i wish it was all in one app.
