Preschool children, four- and five-year-olds, participated in usability testing of a video storybook focused on health and disability awareness and featuring a thematic scheme of navigation. Testing occurred in the naturalistic environment of the preschool classroom and was facilitated by a preschool educator serving as interactor. Peer-tutoring was also employed in testing of storybook use. Testing outcomes suggest further exploration of young children’s ability to use mouse pads for navigation. Also suggested is the development of heuristics relative to maintaining a one-to-one correspondence between story and navigation elements and between ordering of navigation elements and the temporal sequencing of elements of story.
