CD-ROM Today, December 1995
"The magic of math unfolds in the kitchen of a big-eyed Australian boy named James...Kids develop mathematical reasoning and an appreciation for real-world math applications with songs, puzzles, and plenty of offbeat humor. They have a terrific time learning through play.
"Every activity on this CD has spoken directions, so even children too young to read require little adult supervision. Some games - such as the one that reaches simple addition and subtraction using familiar items such as apples, strawberries, and frogs, or the Fruit Shop, where kids shop for items on a shopping list - offer two levels of play. This enables kids to move on to more difficult play as they develop skills.
"James Discovers Math has just the right combination of structured math activities and open-ended free play to make numbers fun."
