Revue, September/October 2001
"An excellent value, this four-CD set offers lots of fun
activities and games for preschoolers. Each program was previously released as
a stand-alone title. Millie & Bailey Preschool, produced by Edmark,
offers many opportunities for children to play with letters and shapes, story
and card making. More Bugs in Boxes is a delightful logic and creativity
CD that lets kids draw with bugs, make music and real along in a bug-themed
book. School Zone's Alphabet Express offers eight letter games including
hidden letters, mazes and coloring. Finally, Grown-Up Gabby in Once Upon a
Time is a limited, one-time-through interactive storybook with five
activities. The first three CDs, however, are top-notch."
