In addition to being entertaining, Flora’s Forest could be used to teach two important lessons. The first lesson, things are not as scary as they first appear; and second, working together as a team is important.
The music, sounds and narrator’s tone change to follow the mood of the story. Stories are much more enjoyable when these elements are used together properly. Narration is easy to understand; however, it would be beneficial to have an option to turn narration off. Narration is good for the young users who may want to look at the book alone. The option to turn narration off is valuable for when a parent would like to read the story to their children or vice versa.
Text is highlighted as it is read, but at times is too fast to be of much benefit to beginning readers. The location of the text is good and does not obscure objects or the scene, and the font used is easy to read.
