Reviews:

Computing with Kids by Jinny Gudmundsen

"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 in a home looking for a reference title."

"The maps and videos in this software are wonderful. Children can learn so much by clicking around and exploring the many inviting icons..."

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!"
