"As Amazon's description declares, "Turn story time into an interactive learning experience with four timeless tales and Ollie-The Talking, Teaching Owl pen! This set includes four beautifully illustrated, 24-page storybooks, each with 11 interactive early learning activities designed to help children master important skills. Perfect for independent, self-paced learning, these books and activities help children master reading comprehension and other critical academic skills." This book is indeed fun. There is one challenge on each pair of pages, with 2-3 correct and 2-3 incorrect answers. Ollie either praises you in words or sings a happy song for correct answers. This hare laughs so deeply at the hare's offer of a race that he cries. He makes stops at the vegetable garden, the stream, and a tree. He decides to take a nap. The last page declares "And so the foolish hare learned that slow and steady wins the race." The art on these shiny, plastic 24 pages fits the approach to the story. Answering the questions for each pair of pages is fun!"
