Enter a Magical Garden

Deep in the heart of the 100 Acre Wood, learning math is the cheeriest of adventures. With Pooh, Tigger and their friends leading the way, children are guided through seven engaging activities that teach and reinforce beginning math skills. As kids accomplish each skill, they earn a fun reward they can use to build their very own gardens. And with so many ways to enjoy those rewards, they'll come back to learn again and again. From counting and sorting, to adding and subtracting, you'll be amazed at how your child will flourish in the garden with his best friend Pooh.

Where Learning and Fun Always Play Together

It's a fine day for planting a garden. Pooh, Tigger and your favorite friends are here to guide you through lots of fun activities. When you finish each one, you'll get something useful to help your garden grow or make it look extra special. So bounce right in. The fun and surprises are waiting for you.

Pooh's Pantry Can you help Pooh put his fresh-picked fruits and veggies into jars? Practice your counting by emptying the baskets in the right order.

Piglet's Cupcake Kitchen Decorate Piglet's cupcakes as they come out of the oven. Frost them, add them up, then choose the jar of sprinkles that matches your total. Yummy!

Rabbit's Rain Dance How about a rain dance to water the garden? Help Rabbit create a sequence of steps by completing the pattern on the sheet. Then watch your 100 Acre Wood friends dance up a storm.

Bug Collecting Roo and Tigger are collecting bugs for the garden. Sort the bugs by color and put them in Roo or Tigger's tray. Who has more? Who has less?

The Wishing Well What would a wishing well wish for? Each time a number appears inside the well, drag over a set of objects that matches the number. Did the wish come true?

Eeyore's Faded Calendar Poor Eeyore can barely see the numbers on his calendar. Follow a critter along it's path as you draw each number with your crayon. When you finish, the critter will dance for you.

Tigger's Contraptions Tigger's machine makes contraptions out of recycled items from the garden. Follow the blueprints to figure out what comes first, then second, and see what pops out.

Computing with Kids by Jinny Gudmundsen

"Cuddly ol' Pooh Bear and his friends make great teachers of math! In this software, children play with their Hundred Acre Wood friends to learn about number recognition, number formation, sets, adding, subtracting, sorting, patterns, and sequences. Baby Roo and Tigger host a great activity that has children catching virtual bugs to sort and count. Eeyore teaches children how to draw numbers by having them follow critters along a path that draws a number. Rabbit needs help creating a pattern so that he can teach each character how to perform a rain dance.

"With three levels of difficulty, Ready for Math with Pooh allows children to grow with the software. It doesn't miss an opportunity to teach number concepts, and it does it in a gentle and supportive way."

Computer Shopper, December 1997

"Winnie the Pooh and math go together like bears and honey in Disney's Ready for Math with Pooh. The popular honey-obsessed bear offers an attractive beehive of activities that help young kids improve their counting, sorting, and basic math skills. For a Bear of Very Little Brain (he is, after all, stuffed with fluff), Pooh does a first-rate job of teaching basic math and encouraging kids to come back.

"Ready for Math offers seven activities to spark budding mathematicians. Kids can select the right number of sprinkels to decorate Piglet's cupcakes, match numbers to help Pooh pack his pantry, and sort and count bugs with Roo and Tigger. They can also arrange dance sequences with the characters, assemble crazy contraptions, and trace numbers with Eeyore.

"To keep kids interested, the game awards them oncreeen prizes such as seeds, plants, and tools that appear in a garden as kids complete levels. Our testers enjoyed planting their well-earned seeds, and jubilantly watched their gardens grow. The program offers three difficulty settings, and the numbers and quantities used in the activities increase from levels appropriate for preschoolers to levels for first graders. Our testers generally enjoyed the activities, although some games, such as bug sorting, got repetitive.

"The graphics and animation are excellent and rank among those of the best children's programs we've seen. The beloved One Hundred Acre Wood characters offer lots of songs and encouraging words. With Disney's Ready for Math, kids can enjoy learning their numbers and improving their counting and sorting skills, and like Tigger, can become math whizzes (after all, it's what Tiggers do best)."
