Discovery School Review Corner
"Though the activities are not particularly innovative, this
CD-ROM based on the PBS Kids television series is enjoyable and provides young
children with practice with letters, letter sounds, and words. The nature theme
goes over well."
"Although language arts is the main focus of the program's
educational content, children are introduced to a few facts about nature
throughout the program. They are told, for example, that "good soil lets plants
spread their roots so they can grow big and strong". The main menu includes a
few question mark hotspots that lead to live-action videos. These video clips
feature Brenda Blue, and provide information about things like the sun, rocks,
plants, and air."
