Description from the packaging.

An interactive storybook adventure.
Told by Robin Williams.
Music by Ry Cooder.

A durn-Tootin' Cowboy Who Shaped the Wild West!

"If it weren't for Bill, there wouldn't have been a Wild West. It just would have been plain old mundane." And so begins the colorful retelling of the legend of Pecos Bill- fearless buckaroo raised by coyotes. Narration by Robin Williams and music by Ry Cooder evoke the Texas of crusty cowboys and campfire tales.

In addition to engrossing storytelling, this interactive experience offers a detailed parents' guide which will help you enrich your child's learning experience. You can choose an age level for games, display the story text on screen so kids see the words as they hear them, select activities related to the story, and much more.

Children can practice such important skills as recall, visual discrimination, classification, positional concepts and more. Pecos Bill is one in a series of interactive storytelling adventures. Other stories include How the Camel Got His Hump, How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin, The Emperor's New Clothes, and Brer Rabbit and the Wonderful Tar Baby.

  • The helpful wizard will teach your child how to use the disc.
  • The "missing pieces" game builds visual discrimination.
  • Tailor the story and games to your child's level.
