Dive Into a World of Interactive Storybook Fun for Kids!
Highlights Storybooks from Bamboo boosts kids’ reading and listening comprehension through professionally narrated, interactive stories. Highlights’ unique approach to “Fun with a Purpose” helps engage children through entertaining stories, while also promoting skills that help lead to success in school — and beyond!
Children and parents can start using the skill by selecting a reading exercise level and story. A friendly narrator begins reading selections from the storybook. After each narration, children are asked questions about the story, which they can verbally answer. Alexa identifies whether the answer is correct or incorrect.
If children need help, they can ask to repeat the question, ask for a hint, answer again or skip. After each set of questions, the narrator continues, so that children can practice listening and participating in different exercises.
