Electronic Entertainment, October 1995

"Preschoolers ages 3 to 6 can master counting the old-fashioned way with Simon & Schuster's How Many Bugs in a Box, the bug-filled pop-up book by David Carter. But the CD-ROM version offers more than just the text of the 10-page book; kids can apply what they read by playing the title's eight counting games. On the computer, Carter's adorable frog bugs, fish bugs, and noodle bugs can sing and play musical instruments too."
