4-0 out of 5 stars Big Thesaurus is Not for Kids
If you are a writer or ever just need to grasp a new or different word, Big Thes 2.1 is for you. It's an interactive thesaurus and a great writing tool. It is set up as a Mac 9.X system extension and is always available onscreen, via a small menu drop-down at the top of the screen.

To use, you highlight a word in ANY program - Word, Office, Pagemaker, Quark - it doesn't matter. Then reach up and click on the Big Thes drop down menu, highlight "lookup selection" and bam -- you get nouns, verbs, adjectives and everything else.

It has 1.4 million combinations, organized by meanings, and up to 40 different definitions per word.

When you find the one you want, you hit "replace" and keep on writing.

It's nifty.

I gave it only 4 because they have not upgraded it to system 10 for the Mac. ... Read more

WOW!! I can't believe this product has been discontinued. It is the greatest, most fun way to learn U.S. and world geography I've found. I'm trying to find a second CD Rom because the thought of not having one if ours gets ruined, practically gives me hives! My first child learned her states, capitals, countries, and flags by playing against me or the clock when she was in 4th grade. My second daughter is in 4th grade now and we're still using this tool. She has 90% of the world's countries and regions memorized and can beat anyone she challenges. We don't even look at this as school (we homeschool), but more as a game. The whole family plays. We've recommended it to friends and teachers and everyone loves it. Please, please, bring it back.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great learning tool for Middle/High School Geography
My older son used this software to learn maps of the world for tests in middle school World Geography. I started looking for it again when by younger son started the same class 4 years later, we wanted an updated version. I am stupified that this product isn't on every educational software site because it is SO WONDERFUL.

My older son is ADD and trying to get him to study hard copy maps for hours on end, learning countries, capitals, rivers, mountains etc. was more than a chore - it was painful. This product was recommended by his teacher. It turned this into a game, but one without extraneous activities. Carmen San Diego may be fun, but it is too easy to get off task. World Discovery Deluxe is like a map version of concentration in a computer game. My son actually reached the point where he could mouse click on every country in Africa with 100% accuracy, without any country borders drawn on the continent. This software challenged him to beat his own time records.

I understand that the use is very specific, more general textbook information is not included in our 1996 version, i.e. commerce, political structure ... But you will not find a better tool to teach a child in middle school or high school map information. ... Read more
