Reviews:

Computing with Kids by Jinny Gudmundsen

"Seven of these activities explore worthwhile exploits like following directions to find fruit, playing memory and logic games, matching baby animals with their parents, and participating in creative art and craft activities. The other four activities are pure arcade.

"Unfortunately, Zoboomafoo suffers from a rigid interface that presents the 11 games at specific intervals and does not allow the child control over the play. It is also difficult to switch between the three difficulty levels offered in these activities.

"However, the Kratt brothers’ respect and love of nature is obvious and infectious. They create a caring world of nature that helps teach children to appreciate the diverse world in which we live."
