Instructions are so detailed and clear that even inexperienced teachers or parents can get great results. The “Talking” feature of the MagicPEN allows children to touch the pages and then hear the stories in English, and various languages such as Hindi, Gujarati, Spanish, Russian, and Thai.Krishna Learning
This technology allows children to read with understanding and expression.

The “Voice Recording” feature in the pen allows children to interact with the book and helps a teacher to easily monitor children’s reading skills. It also allows children to compare their own reading to the pre-recorded English in the book itself. The fascinating stories and the MagicPEN makes learning fun so children are inspired to learn. The books are traditional Vedic tales, stories from scripture, or of children who follow traditional culture with respect for cows and the environment. Reading gives children pride and confidence in their culture.
