Shortcut To Technical Information

The 'early years' pages are for you to view with your young child.

Click on the location of choice on the drop-down menu and an animated picture-book sequence will begin in a new window.

First you will see a line drawing accompanied by music for twenty seconds to give you time to discuss what's going on. Then the words of the first part of the story will be displayed and read out loud.



After the words have been read the screen will display two ducks. Click on the "read it again" duck to hear the words again. Click on the "This way please" duck to continue.

The sequence will be repeated twice and when the story ends the "This way please" duck will lead you on to an activities page which includes a karaoke style sing along version of the tune.

For visitor information click on the pictures below. You'll also get a grown ups version of the story, information on the legend and tune, and suggestions for talking points about each picture.

Technical Information

This early years extension to Mythstories' site is designed to use Adobe Flash Player. If your computer does not have Flash, click here to download.

If you are using Safari on a Mac you will not hear the music with the illustrations so there will be 20 seconds of silence while each of the three illustrations appear on screen. However you will hear the episodes of the story read out loud when the words appear on screen. The music file does play on the "What can we do?" page shown after the end of the story, so you and your child can learn the song and sing to the silent illustrations next time.
