Indeed I thought the best thing the Primer did was realize that she
couldn't read and promptly taught her how. Give a kid that and
access to information and you've done a good deed.

Essentially a literacy primer and voice activated intelligent

Of course we could probably accomplish the same thing by
widebanding "Sesame Street".
