SuperKids Educational Software Reviews

"Each chapter contains an educational drill, in one of several familiar computer game styles -- Pac-man style mazes, Mario-style obstacle avoidance -- as well as several more typical educational computing drills -- fill in the blank from multiple choices, and rearrange the letters. Surprisingly, the majority of these drills are focused on spelling, rather than reading and writing."

"Curious George Reads, Writes, & Spells is best suited for a child who has begun to sound-out words, and can easily identify letters. Good fine-motor skills are helpful."
