Adventure by Sean T. Davis
"...The good people at Humongous have created a game that
reinforces all the hard work that a "good" teacher does by taking the
fundamental reading skills and incorporating them into a game that not only
tricks the child into reading, but also stars one of the most famous dogs of
all time. How can you beat that?"
"The game begins with the
famous Nick Jr. intro that the kids have come to love. I enjoyed the
introduction because I did not spend a lot of time watching Steve talk, but a
story line is quickly established. The basic concept of the game is Steve had
bought the last newspaper from the newsstand, and it is up to Blue to get more
newspapers. In order to get more papers, our roaming reporter Blue has to go
out and find big stories for the Big News Gazette. Now our roaming reporter is
not your average reporter. This reporter gets to do cool interactive activities
to uncover the stories."
"The game strengthens writing, word and letter recognition,
comprehension and prediction, and listening comprehension..."
Computing with Kids by Jinny
"In this unique new title, children join Blue, the adorable
canine star of the television show, 'Blue's Clues,' in helping to design a
newspaper. To acquire news stories, children play a series of highly inventive
games and activities with Blue's friends. While playing, children learn word
recognition, increase their vocabularies, and practice beginning reading
comprehension skills. This title is special because it teaches word awareness,
not the alphabet or letter sounds."
