At its core, "Sitting on the Farm" is a musical storybook comprised of four levels, playable in English, French or Spanish, through which children can explore and learn: -- "Listen-along" allows children to hear the story being read while the pages automatically turn. -- "Read-along" uses fun animation and pictures to expand children's vocabulary as they read the story to themselves or record it aloud with a microphone to hear their own voice and practice pronunciation. -- "Sing-along" leads children to explore musical concepts as they record themselves singing the story's song along with accompanying music from the CD-ROM. -- "Write-along" encourages children to be creative as they write, print and publish their own stories and coloring books. The Windows version of "Sitting on the Farm" will be available in March for a suggested retail price of $39.95.
