There are two play modes, like many Living Books titles. There is Read To Me, which reads it to you, and Let Me Play, which lets you also play around with the items in the background. There are also two bonus games, Animal Match and Picture Jumble. Animal Match is matching and Picture Jumble is a puzzle. There are demos of other Living Books titles on the disc. If you put the PC version's disc in a CD player, you can listen to music from the storybook.
