A comprehensive, well-designed package containing story book, tape, parents' book, overlay and program in a library cassette box. The aims are to introduce words, practise reading from left to right, develop understanding of how words form sentences, introduce punctuation marks and to improve hand-eye co-ordination.

Story Time, where parent and child listen to the story while reading the book, is followed by a program using five activities. Snap appears in three activities, where two characters, Goldilocks and Baby Bear, stand on boxes upon which pictures or words appear. Pressing pink or blue areas on the overlay signify snap for either player - causing the character to dance and a plant to grow, flowering after five correct answers.

Find The Word presents a sentence with a flashing picture replacing a word; while above are three words next to a pointing character, whose hand is keyed to move - the selected word keyed to the gap. Correct ones cause the character to dance and the word to appear.

All activities are repeated using the Wolf and Red Riding Hood.
