Description from the packaging.

Discover the wonder of words in Shadow's Magical Alphabet Land.

You'll like Shadow- the friendly, three-dimensional blue character whose world is made up of magic letters and whimsical rhymes. You can explore and interact with Shadow's magical alphabet world through cute, entertaining and sometimes zany animations- all 200 or so!

For each letter in Shadow's world, there is a rhyme and a shadowbox filled with fun things which begin with that letter. With the letter A, you can have Shadow read you the rhyme about a "couple of acorns on a brisk autumn day." Listen to the rhyme, explore the shadowbox- and then go on a Treasure Hunt to find even more items which begin with the letter A. When you're all done, you can create your very own shadowbox!

For parents or other adults:

The Book of Shadowboxes: A Story of the ABC's teaches the alphabet through rhyme and object recognition. It encourages your child to interact with the program and learn through discovery. To extend the fun, you'll find many extension activities.

Developed with the assistance of early childhood experts, The Book of Shadowboxes: A Story of the ABC's helps your child with reading, vocabulary development, listening comprehension, memory and problem-solving skills, as well as letter recognition and object/word associations- all while encouraging your child's creativity!

Age group: Children 3-8 years old and English as a Second Language (ESL) students.

  • Shadow like to read aloud to you. He has a poem for every letter.
  • Click on the airplane and watch it fly away. Then find the acorns. They act like nuts!
  • Can you find more things that start with Z? How about zucchinis, zinnias, a zeppelin.
