Reading a Book

Reading a Book

To read a book on your bookshelf, click its cover image. The book opens with arrow buttons on its left and right and play controls underneath.



If you’d like to read the book by yourself, use the arrow buttons to turn its pages. If you’d like to have the book read to you, press the play button and follow along with the highlighting as the words are read aloud. Use the volume controls to the left of the play button to control the loudness of the narration.

If you’d like to zoom in on the page to see something closer, click the magnifying glass to the right of the play button, then click anywhere on the page. When you click the magnifying glass again, the book returns to its normal size.  

Use the menu that opens when you click the three lines in the upper left-hand corner of the screen to return to your bookshelf or add the book to your favorites. 

When you get to the end of the book, click the right-arrow button to close it, then click Finish Book on the next screen to collect your LevelUp Land stars! You get five stars every time you finish a book. Stars are used to buy characters and objects in LevelUp Land.
