If you want a fun, absorbing experience play with this yourself! This cd-rom allows children of all ages to create a book, even those that can't type can use a microphone and 'speak' the story. The cd contains hundreds of pictures, all in easy to find catagories, borders, a drawing board to create and change existing pictures, music to add to each page and a wide variety of backgrounds. My three children (all under 6, but great for any age) have had hours on enjoyment with this, even printing out their own story books to give to friends and to accompany school projects. There is scope for a huge amount of creativity, and the books can been saved on file so each child can go back and change and read their own stories whenever they want. Even my husband and I have enjoyed playing with it! I would well recommend it to anybody who likes value for money and absorbing 'play' for their kids on a wet afternoon.
