Electronic Entertainment, January 1995

"Your kids won't think of this electronic dictionary as a mere reference tool. It's a fun place to learn about new words and ideas, with more than 1,000 illustrations and audio-annotated definitions.

"Kids will find it easy to get around by pointing and clicking on the letters of the alphabet. Each word has a photograph or illustration along with its text definition. Click on the word to hear it pronounced, click on the picture to see a fun animation, or click on an icon to hear the defiition read aloud. Additional icons let kids explore related terms such as opposites, alternative meanings, and thematically related words. The program is intended for children 3 to 7, but it extends its appeal to older kids with high-tech terms like compact disc.

"The program also includes three word games. My First Incredible Amazing Dictionary is a surefire way to get kids excited about using a dictionary."

CD ROM Power, March/April 1995

"With its lavish illustrations, rich content, and clever design, this title is not just a dictionary, but also an exploration of words and their meaning. In all, more than 1,000 words and their meanings are featured, bringing everyday words to life with a simple click of the mouse."

"Throughout the title, entertaining animation and friendly voices guide you through the different sections. The title also includes a surprise element. By clicking on a magician's top hat icon, a randomly selected word appears for you to learn.

"This exceptional learning tool is designed for reinforcement. Through pictures, sound, and games, your child will come away knowing what words mean and how to recognize them, not just how to spell them. For grown-ups, the beautiful illustrations will keep you entertained, and you may just manage to broaden your own vocabulary along the way."
