Reviews:

Computing with Kids by Jinny Gudmundsen

"The strengths of this software are many. This is a great way to learn both vocabulary and early reading skills because the riddles highlight words, say them aloud, and show a picture of the hidden object. Hunting for hidden objects to solve a riddle requires children to use visual discrimination and memory. The sorting activity develops early math skills by teaching children to classify objects by attributes. When making puppets, children must learn to listen to directions."
