CD-ROM Today, June 1995

"Weaver has a clever opening screen and user interface. As kids move the pointer around the screen with their mouse, they're prompted on the screen as to whether they want to read a story they've already written, write a new story, or print a story...

"This program also helps trigger the writing process with a set of Story Starters. Essentially, these are titles designed to spark a child's imagination. Phrases like 'The Day My Brother Turned into a Bear' or 'The Dragon's Journey' can inspire kids who insist they have nothing to write about.

"If kids use the Story Starters, the program supplies a title page and a few pages of ready-made scenes and text. Kids can change the text and illustrations to match the story they want to create. This is a great way for young writers to get used to the tools, and they'll soon want to create their own stories."

HomePC, February 1996

"Thousands of scenes, objects and characters encourage kids ages 6 to 12 to create and illustrate stories in this rich, creative program - young writers can even orchestrate a score for their tales using more than 100 musical selections and sound effects. Thirty-seven illustrated 'story starters' help children overcome writer's block, and budding authors can write in English or Spanish with the help of a bilingual spell checker and thesaurus. It may take a couple of hours to get comfortable with the program's feast of functions, but it'll be time well spent."
