The pictures in Thinky's web book are from
his first movie. You can order the complete: Thinky Mars Probe
in "Looking for Mr. Snake" -26 minutes-on VHS video
in color with music, sound effects, and spoken dialogue. Produced
and directed by award winning film maker, Jerome Hamlin (SpacePlayers,
Season of Fire, Cry of the Indri) who also created the award winning
web site: dinofish.com. and invented the world's first computer
controlled domestic robot: ComRoI! This innovative video, first
in the Thinky Reader / Explorer series, includes a side scrolling
text that prompts your child to read along at a target pace. The
12 minute story is repeated twice, first with the characters speaking
their dialogue as the text "walks" across the bottom
of the screen, then with the speech turned off in a text only
mode so the child is prompted to read the dialogue aloud as the
story progresses. By watching the program more than once, kid's
get so they can read the dialogue aloud at the pace of the story-
a nifty self-motivating reading accelerator as part of a fun video.
The video includes many more scenes than could be presented in
the web book.
