Description

In Arthur’s Reading Race by Living Books, the main character Arthur challenges his younger sister D.W. to read 10 words. If she can read that many words he will buy her ice cream. They travel through the town along with Arthur’s dog Pal, finding all kinds of words while having fun along the way. As with other Living Books series, the title presents pages that are drawn in a brightly colored cartoon style with animations.

Arthur’s Reading Race has several other mini games inside the pages for children to explore. You can match words with pictures, and, in a board game race, move your pawn ahead by the amount of letters in a word. There is an I-Spy game, where objects are described and the player must find them in the picture. Many hidden objects within the pages are waiting to be found by clicking on them. You can also click on any of the words of the story and hear them repeated to promote reading skills.
