Reviews:

Computing with Kids by Jinny Gudmundsen

"Children become engaged in this mystery because it has the right combination of scariness and intrigue. This software rates a five stars because its logic puzzles are fun, academically sound, and can be played repeatedly. If you so desire, the puzzles will adapt to the child’s ability, so that the activities constantly remain challenging but doable."
