Computing with Kids by Jinny Gudmundsen

"Making her computer debut with this software title, Dora embarks on an adventure to return books to the public library. Preschoolers can choose to play the game as a story in the “Backpack Adventure Mode” or they can jump directly into the activities in “Freeplay Map Mode.” In either mode, the seven activities have three levels of difficulty, and kids earn stickers for printable art activities."

"This software was a big hit with our preschool testers. Its learning exercises are simple and provide a lot of mouse practice. It cocoons little ones with help when they are confused. Swiper, the troublesome fox in the TV show, periodically sneaks up and must be banished by clicking. In addition, the program entices kids to explore (and thus use the mouse more) by hiding tons of clickable animations at each location."
