Designed for read-aloud sessions between a child and adult, this electronic book detects changes in the environment and responds by emitting associated sounds. As you turn each page, pre-programmed sounds and music accompany the text and illustrations. Additional live sounds play according to changes in the reader's voice and the ambient light.
