Waitsfield, VT (PRWEB) January 11, 2007
http://www.cyoa.com -- Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA), the ground-breaking interactive children's book series, now takes interactivity to a new level. As of today, you can download book #1 and "choose" an adventure on your iPod.
Unlike the typical "one way only" story in a narrated audiobook, the CYOA download goes in countless directions as "you" in the role of main character click on links to select the story's direction. The video screen allows the user to view full color illustrations, albeit in miniature. R. A. Montgomery, CYOA author and founder, narrates the story in which "you" are a skilled mountain climber on an expedition through the Himalayas in search of the elusive Yeti. Sound effects like the whirl of a helicopter or howling winds enhance the sense of immersion.
"iPod is one of many ways to reach kids," says Montgomery. "In particular this is an exciting new way to help reading and decision-making skills."
Choose Your Own Adventure #1 - The Abominable Snowman audiobook download is designed for use with all varieties of Apple iPod. Until January 25, 2007 download the audiobook for free at the Official Choose Your Own Adventure store: http://www.cyoastore.com
