The Land Before Time Animated Movie Book
Sound Source Interactive’s specialty is porting movies to CD-ROM, and then adding a few interactive elements to justify the move. With The Land Before Time Animated Movie Book (ages 3-7), they do a fairly good job of balancing footage from the film with plenty of dinosaur-related games and activities. Choose to have the story read aloud, or follow Littlefoot and his motley crew of young, abandoned dinosaurs scene-by-scene, on their trek to reach the Great Valley. Within each of the 30 scenes there are options to piece together a jigsaw puzzle, test your spelling skills, identify shapes and colors, or learn more about dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures. The Land Before Time doesn’t win any awards for innovation, but there’s enough here to keep fans of the movie (and dinosaur lovers) occupied for a few hours.
