Children's Software & New Media Revue, September/October 2001

"This multiple-CD set would make a nice addition to any home or school software library. Included are four previously released programs. Mighty Math Zoo Zillions by Edmark, is a wonderful math playground that offers opportunity for experimentation with numbers, addition and subtraction. Spanish Vocabulary Builder presents a straightforward set of activities that teach Spanish words. We especially liked how the program can be played in other languages besides English, including French, German and Italian. Curious George Paint & Print Studio lets children create scenes with stamps, paints and other art tools. Finally, School Zone's Beginning Reading offers two animated, read-along stories, plus a create-a-story activity. You're getting lots of bang for the buck."
