Living Books: Stories and poems you bring to life!

(Colossal)Pictures' Ruff's Bone by Eli Noyes.

In this offbeat adventure, we follow Ruff on a far-ranging hunt for his wayward bone. His search takes us down a deep dark hole in the Earth and high up into the clouds. Fearlessly, he travels to a faraway jungle, then below the seas to a sunken ship and off to other exotic locations. Along the way, we meet a pair of playful monkeys, stars that sing, tap-dancing jeans, a friendly robot and dozens of other wacky characters. Can he find his special bone and get home again?

Living Books are stories touched by magic. They spring to life with characters that talk and move and sing and dance. Sound effects, music, humor and lots of animations create a whole new learning experience.

Children just point and click. So they can repeat favorite parts, go back or skip ahead, all at their own pace.

Reading skills grow through word recognition. As the computer reads them aloud, individual words, phrases and lines are highlighted.

In English and Spanish. Change from English to Spanish and back again with just a click.
