It was then re-released in 1997 under the title "Reader Rabbit's Interactive Reading Journey For Grades K-1", followed by another released in 1998 titled "Reader Rabbit's Reading Ages 4–6" and a personalized version in 1999.
The game teaches users how to read effectively. Forty storybooks can be read aloud or narrated to the user. Over 100 reading exercises include phonics, word-recognition, spelling skills and building vocabulary. The activities incorporate repetition of words, followed by a gradual increase of word variety. The game challenges users to keep learning independently and helps them to become interested in reading. It also allows older users to build up on their previous skills. Overall, "Reading Journey" allows learners to set their reading progress at their own page. The game came packaged with printed versions of 40 stories included in the game, which aid in reading along at the computer or independent reading away from the computer.
