Interaction and Animation

With V.Reader, stories come to life through narration, character voices, graphics, sounds, and music. As the V.Reader plays the story to your child, it highlights the word as they are spoken together with the animation. When your child touches a word, the word reacts and the V.Reader pronounces it. If the child touches their favorite character, like Lightning McQueen, it becomes animated within the story.
