Computing with Kids by Jinny
"This title presents a powerhouse of geography information
through a variety of games, maps, interactive journeys, and videos. Because its
presentation is very academic, this title works well in a classroom as well as

Children can learn so much by clicking around and exploring the many inviting
The Review Zone by Tina Velgos
"Kids fill out their very own passport and get set to travel
the world. The Great Globetrotter Game gives children an opportunity to race
around the globe in search of over 50 destinations. By solving clues that Joe
provides them as to where he and his family are, children can reach the
destination and be rewarded with a snapshop of themselves (a cartoon character
that they selected as their own picture on their passport) at each famous
landmark. Visit the logbook and check out where they've been! In a way, the
game reminded me of the classic Carmen Sandiego adventures, but World Explorer
2.0 is in a class of its own.
"New to the 2.0 edition are 16 mini-videos which provides
kids with tidbits about people and wildlife around the world. There's also a
multiple-choice game, "Take Off", which lets kids take a stab at over 500
questions about continents, capitals, famous places and national flags.
Perfectly suitable for the classroom, home school or for at-home fun, this
fully-revised and updated version provides kids with a wonderful interactive
journey around the world!"
