The VTech Storio Features
The VTech Storio offers not only detailed animation, but also lots of educational activities, plus features which are very parent-friendly. Just plug in the storybook cartridge and you can watch stories on its LCD touch screen measuring 4.3-inches. The Storio comes with a full keyboard and a stylus that will help you navigate through the audio narration and colorful graphics. Other features of the Storio include the Watch The Story. The animation will make the child so excited and interested in the story, and as you read the story to him or her, and they will pick up an understanding of vowels, letters and phonics at the same time.
Also on board the VTech Storio is the Story Dictionary, which helps budding readers to tackle words which are difficult to understand. As they follow the narrative and find either distinctive words or words that are always repeated, they simply press that particular word to find out what it means. This way, children will have a clearer understanding of the alphabet. The Storio will help broaden the kids’ knowledge on books; and you can help children maximize this benefit by bringing them to libraries so that their knowledge of books will be broadened.
The VTech Storio also helps to make sure that your children’s reading experience is enjoyable and fun. The Reading Games is a specially designed feature that allows the older readers to access the feature, play and also learn with the reading curriculum that is story-related. There are bright buttons placed on the durable casing where children can turn the pages and do other actions. At ages 6, 7 and beyond, children will get to read more fluently and their interest in books is widened. And, to enable you to keep an eye on the reading progress of children and make sure that they are learning on track and developing, you can download the Progress Tracker from Storio.
