Designed by early learning experts, Millie's Math House
gives young children the building blocks they need to develop a solid
foundation in math. In seven fun-filled activities, kids explore numbers,
shapes, sizes, patterns, addition and subtraction as they build mouse houses,
create wacky bugs, make jelly bean cookies and enjoy learning in Millie's
Explore Shapes. Use blueprints - or your own
creativity - and learn about geometric shapes as you build a Mouse House. Print
and color your houses too!
Compare and Match Sizes. Little, Middle and Big need
shoes! Help them try on boots, high tops, sandals and slippers as you explore
the concept of size.
Encourage Creativity. Learn about numbers and
quantity as you place from 1 to 10 rolling eyes, wagging tails, wiggling
antennae and other moving parts on a bug!
Learn to Count. Little critters pop up and count off
when you select a number from 0 to 30 in the Number Machine.
Develop Problem Solving. Decorate cookies with 0 to
20 jelly beans in the Cookie Factory - and discover the sequence of events
required to make a tasty treat for Harley, the horse.
Add and Subtract. Place the same number of objects on
your stage as Dorothy has on hers! How many is that? You'll have to count, add
and subtract to find out!
See and Hear Patterns. Create, recognize and complete
patterns with Bing and Boing, the bouncing pals. As they hop on a picture, it
makes a wacky sound. Record your own sounds for even more fun!

Computing with Kids by
"This classic in children's software is the
best title to use to introduce preschoolers to early math. Youngsters play with
Millie (a moose) in seven different activities which teach number recognition,
counting, beginning addition and subtraction, size and shape discrimination,
and patterns. Children can learn to count by placing jelly beans on virtual
cookies, or by selecting the number of crazy parts to place on a virtual
bug-there is nothing like ten rolling eyes and seven wiggling antennae to help
motivate a child to count. Each activity in this program is well thought out
and dedicated to teaching young children how to learn in a fun and supportive
environment. Good preschool software should create a learning environment that
doesn't allow failure-Millie's Math House does just that. This title works
equally well in a classroom or in a home."
