"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

other languages besides English, including French, German and Italian.
