A Story About Me: In The Backyard

In A Story About Me: In The Backyard (Philips Media – ages 3-8), kids get to star in their own interactive storybook. You can import your own photographs via a scanner, photo CD, or digital camera to create a truly personal adventure. Younger kids can insert their photos into an animated story about a child going to great lengths to avoid taking a bath. Older kids can write their own story, add music clips, sound effects, and backgrounds, and record their own narration. The program does have its limitations; there’s no way to get a perfect fit between the photo and the pre-drawn bodies, for instance – you’re limited to three sizes – and more variety in every section would be nice. Still, A Story About Me is a fun and creative way to start kids writing.
