Reviews:

Discovery School

"A conversation with the Wizard of Oz explains the mission of this graphically rich problem-solving program. In order for their wishes to be granted, they must rescue Dorothy by collecting nine jewels of a special medallion and destroy the Wicked Witch. This task doesn't sound easy to the Scarecrow, Tin Woodsman, and Lion, each of whom feels he is missing an important feature — a brain, a heart, and courage, respectively. Fortunately, they have your child to help them."

"This nice-looking and easy-playing program retells a classic story with a fun twist. Rescuing Dorothy and Toto is made enjoyable with engaging and educational activities that exercise basic thinking skills. A good choice for children ages 4-7."
