The reading selections which fall into three levels of difficulty are designed specifically for children of ages 4-10. The use of a friendly narrator lends an endearing quality as well as bring to light their unique approach to make learning fun and engaging. Backed by the motto to help children succeed in school, the Highlights Storybooks skill aims to capture the attention of little ones by exhilarating them with the addition of ding sound effects and applause for the right answer. If by chance, a child happens to give some random word instead of the answer, do not feel discouraged as the skill has been designed to repeat the question in such an event. All the more, what’s commendable is that if ever your child provides the wrong answer, the skill will rerun the entire story.
