        This book set was very educational and engaging. My kids loved venturing through each book with the hand held talking owl. The owl let my kids know if they were right or should guess again when navigating on each page. Very fun!

          My daughter loves to "read" the story and answer the questions. She usually touches all the correct answers, and then all the incorrect answers.

            Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Junior Famous Fables Interactive Storybooks Set:

            This started off as a big win. My son really liked the talking pen, and was very pleased with himself when he got all the answers right (or wrong!) in the books. The stories themselves are cute and the illustrations are lovely. My son enjoyed (and still enjoys) reading all of them.

            The dots themselves work fine. You read a question on the page and press the pen on the correct answer. The dots are a bit distracting, especially if there are several on a page. Furthermore, they rarely tie into the story. It may be asking a child to put the pen to all of the objects on the page of a certain pattern or color, or to find a tall plant. We found it derailed from the telling of the story. After a few times through the books, my son would say, "I just said that already" as he knew all the answers and no longer wanted to use the pen. It would have been nicer if the books/pen had smaller or hidden triggers for the pen to pick up on, or if they were related to the story. When we first opened it, we thought the pen would ask the questions and he'd have to find a novel answer every time (or as many options as there were on the page).

            Cute book and toy set, worked well, but does not have longevity in our house, unless he hasn't picked it up in a while.

            The book is cute and my child enjoys the stories and questions. The owl pen feels cheap and the sounds it makes are very low volume and tinny sounding. It's a great concept and my son was super happy to bring it to play in the car, waiting at the Dr, etc. I love the portability and concept, just wish it was better made.
