Parents looking to encourage reading and vocabulary development in their child will love Kite Capers, Kids not only hear and read their name in the narrative, but see their own faces in the interactive illustrations as well. This CD uses a unique graphics treatment process called “Image-In Technology” which allows users to incorporate digital photographs into the interactive storybook pages by simply loading up a photo and tracing around the face. The image is then seamlessly inserted into the cartoon-like world complete with the child, an excitable monkey and a friendly cloud.
Kite Capers offers a good deal of complex personalization so children will feel the story they are reading truly involves them. The child is able to use their own name with their own unique spelling throughout the text of the story and the character’s skin tone and clothes can be adjusted, as well.
To help the child improve their literacy skills Kite Capers has a narration option with “karaoke” text so that children can read along with the story teller. Hearing their name read throughout the story gives children confidence-building reinforcement.
The child's name and gender are inserted in the story and the image used in the story can be either a customized animated image or, for the most personalized experience, a portrait image of the child lifted from a digital photograph using IMAGE IN technology.
The character is fully adjustable so as to best personalize the starring actor... your child!! Kite Capers develops self-confidence in kids as well as reading skills, pronunciation, hand-eye co-ordination, vocabulary and computer skills. A fantastic present!
Your child will want to read the story again and again. Each animated page is an educational and enjoyable experience in itself.
