Interesting use of microphone, but boring and unengaging

  • Summary: I got this through the Amazon Vine program and was excited to find a Wii game aimed at the younger age set. My husband and I love playing games on the Wii but were at a loss to find games easy enough to play with our 3 year old son.

May not hold your much interest for your children

  • Summary: The Wii is such a popular family gaming system that I've long thought the Wii should have some "interactive" storybooks and games. Unfortunately, this one falls short of my initial expectations for a reading/storybook game.

Disappointment - don't expect frills just because it's on the Wii platform

  • Summary: We're big on reading, so I got this for my nephews (4 & 7). My own child is too young for this, but our family does a lot of sharing & trading of things like. So my intent was to get it back some day! :) The 7-year old, who is a Wii expert, lost interest in about 30 seconds.

OK for little ones, but doesn't seem to hold long term interest.

  • Summary: I guess I'm old fashioned, but after the novelty wears off there isn't much to hold interest with this game. Personally, I prefer just reading an actual book with the kids and letting the imagination fill out the mental pictures.

Great game for children who love stories

  • Summary: Okay so I read the other reviews and the negative ones can be considered biased and seem to be effected by compatibility issues. Now with that said I think this game will be perfect for children under the age of 8 that love to have stories read to them.

rather weak

  • Summary: My kids didn't really care for the game. They kind of liked the voice painting game. The stories were either too long for a early reader, or too boring for the one who could actually read them. They rarely want to play with it.

Enjoyable with varied content but would rate this PG for some of that content.

  • Summary: I advise parents to preview the stories before their children use this program as some may be upsetting to more sensitive or younger children. For instance, in this Little Red Riding Hood version both Grandmother and LRRH get eaten by the wolf, a hunter happens by, sees the wolf's big belly and...

Some of it is fun, but some is a little so-so...

  • Summary: There are different sections to this game. You can listen to stories and earn "stickers" to decorate with. You can record yourself reading the story so your kids can hear your voice instead of the computer. In some cases you can sound like a robot or a gnome.

Horrible noises!!

Denise Patterson, Amazon
4 January 2010
  • Summary: I HATED this game and truly regretted getting it, even for free. The sound quality was grating and AWFUL - and of course my son's favorite part of the game turned out to be this 'microphone effects' part where he spoke into a microphone and it did various annoying sound effects on whatever he said,...

Kids liked this game but low replay value.

  • Summary: I'm always on the lookout for fun, educational games for my two young nephews ages four and eight. The Storybook Workshop for their Wii looked promising. Likes: >Features classic children's fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm, Aesop, and Hans Christian Anderson, etc.
