4-0 out of 5 stars Good Game... Parts of it are a bit monotonous for young kids
This game was purchased for my six year old. She is a pretty active kid...not a lot of computer experience yet. When she first began to play, she was very tempted to look at her fingers...I sat beside her and held a lg. piece of paper over her hands, which solved the problem. The first night she learned to type f,d,j and k. She liked to "shoot bugs" (by typing the correct letter) but mandatory pages of just letters was a bit frustrating for her. I think that this game should go a little slower and therefore be more of a game and less work. I rate this game a solid B. It seems that it would be perfect for an 8 or 9 year old.

5-0 out of 5 stars Time to give Mavis her walking papers!
This is not one of those cutesy titles that only pretends to be about education. This is an extremely well-designed, well-thought-out program that effectively teaches typing (i.e., keyboarding). Anything even remotely associated with The Lion King may trigger the gag reflex in survivors of the whole Lion King blitzkrieg, but rest assured: Timon and Pumba do not have center stage here; the lessons do. Never sacrificing the functional for the cute or gimmicky, this program is structured, yet adaptive, and uses a gradual progression of exercises to provide just the right degree of challenge as the user progresses. In other words, the program captivates by providing variation (to keep things from getting dull) and by making the goal seem easy while maintaining just the right level of difficulty. Both my wife and nine-year-old were instantly hooked and have progressed dramatically. I do have a few minor complaints (for example, icons for navigating through the program could be more intuitive or--Heaven forbid--identified with actual words), but overall, this is a finely crafted tool that condenses a one-semester high school typing class (of yore) onto a single CD-ROM--but without the boring teacher.

1-0 out of 5 stars Unhappy
I have had a terrible time getting this program to run. It constantly shuts down or comes up with errors. It was a total waste of money as far as I am concerned.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great game, tons of fun!!!!!!
This game includes four fun-filled levels. It's great for kids of all ages. But I am sorry that it is SO difficult to find in stores. I recomend this item to anyone who is looking for a very, very fun learn to type game for children.

2-0 out of 5 stars Boring! Boring! Boring!
While this program appears to be cute and engaging at the onset, it quickly becomes very boring. My daughter likes the ONE game, but can't get past the first row of typing because it's so monotanous. There is nothing to challenge her to keep going and improving - no incentive. Just more boring repetition like we had to do in high-school. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Teacher Recommended!
The teacher says yes! Well, I grew up with Schoolhouse Rock. I sing most of the songs to myself when teaching these areas of language arts. My students tend to play the videos (of the originals as played on TV) over and over as they play the language arts games. From the conductor in Conjunction Junction to the boy in Lolly Lolly Get Your Adverbs Here, they all show up. Schoolhouse Rocky shows you the way as you learn, laugh and sing along. Also: look for Math Rock, which is just as good!!
Several different levels are available on both games.

4-0 out of 5 stars It STILL Rocks!
I totally loved the between cartoons cartoons that inadverdently taught me about history, grammar, and political process. They STILL rock, only our techie-kids can get even more from the CD Roms. My 4 year old laughed out loud and found the context very entertaining, and like her mother, had no idea just how much she was learning. I highly recommend this CD Rom. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful vocab and spelling booster
My First Incredible Amazing Dictionary is exactly what I was looking for to teach my 5 year old reading and vocabulary. It is a straight forward but well designed list of about 1000 first words. The words are presented in a list with pictures, and when he clicks on the picture the word comes out. The dictionary pronounces the word, pronounces the entire explanation, then shows an animated picture that demonstrates the meaning of the word. It is wonderful for homeschooling or just to give the child an edge in school. My boy spent about 10 hours clicking around it when I first showed him the game. Now, I am currently making him go through 16 words a day, in alphabetical order, to write each word down as he listens to its pronunciation and meaning. I give him a small candy as a reward afterwards, and he doesn't mind doing it because the animated pictures are very interesting, and all different. I think this is an excellent idea from DK and definitely wonderful teaching tool. Besides the dictionary, it also has word games, but my son isn't ready for it now. He will be!
Highly recommended for homeschoolers. But if you are just looking for a game, this is not really a game and your child probably won't play it too long, compared to other computer games.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Vocabulary Development Software for pre-k to 3rd
Dorling-Kindersley's My First Amazing Incredible Dictionary is an absolute delight! Pre-readers up through 3rd graders (or so) will find this software easy to use and intriguing. The graphics, animation, and sounds are mesmerizing. Any child who can point and click can easily entertain himself for at least 30 minutes at at time. After clicking on a letter of the alphabet, the child is taken to a page with pictures of words for that letter, arranged in dictionary format. A click on any picture sends the child to the page for that word. The child then has the option to click on the word itself or the word's definition, which will result in voicing of the text. The child can click on the large colorful photgraph or cartoon drawing depicting the word. The fun is in discovering what will happen with this click. Will it be animation of the picture, a sound or both? Whatever the case, children are usually delighted. The vocabulary items include the obligatory concrete nouns, but also abstract verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and prepostions. There are easy links provided for words with the same spelling but different meanings. I have used this software with hearing impaired, speech impaired, and learning disabled children at work as a speech/language pathologist. All of them loved it. Besides the dictionary, there are games that children will find fun to try alone or with a friend. Enjoy!

Amazon.com Review

Curious George as a cub reporter--a professional match made in heaven! And this story-within-a-story approach goes beyond teaching reading, writing, and spelling skills. Kids who master this CD-ROM are well on their way to understanding structure and storytelling as they help write articles and watch Curious George's (mis)adventures unfold with each of the 12 activities.

Whereas most CD-ROMs have a reference-book approach, where you open up to a table of contents and click straight to the good parts, Curious George Reads, Writes, and Spells opens up and envelops the player like a good storybook. If you get impatient and try to skip activities, the flow of the story becomes disjointed. The "book" begins with Curious George and his friend bringing Lola, the talking parrot, to The Curious Times; they think Lola would make a great story for the newspaper. Ace reporter Hildy Hawkins agrees, but has to scurry away to cover another big story. Curious George can't resist letting Lola out of her cage, and the parrot escapes. As George and his friend chase Lola around town, they disrupt sign painters, distract construction workers, and even manage to get some stories assigned to them by a beleaguered-looking newspaper editor.

This plot has 12 twists in all, and each of these plot elements is accompanied by a reading, writing, or spelling game. One of our favorites was a sly reference to Donkey Kong, where George must scale steel girders and avoid I-beams to pluck letters hanging from a construction site and use them to spell words. As the story builds to a chaotic climax and then wraps up with a final activity, there's a nice feeling of completeness. This wonderful CD-ROM won't just teach kids how to write--it may teach them how to write well. (Ages 5 to 8) --Anne Erickson ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Curious George Learns Phonics may be in a digital format, but it has the same gently rendered pastel artwork and whimsical characters that made H.A. Rey's classic children's books so popular. This CD-ROM takes kids under the big top, where they can master letter sounds, word parts, and reading comprehension with clowns, musical seals, and acrobatic elephants. Phonics is the focus here, so most of the six activities have to do with matching word parts. Match a clown holding a picture of a log with another clown holding a picture of the letter L, and the clowns team up and tell a joke of the "Why do hummingbirds hum? Because they don't know the words!" variety. Match the right pictures with the vowels under Sammy the Musical Seal's horns, and he will honk out a little tune. Build words in the fun house by grabbing the correct letter when a clown dangles it out the window.

One of the most entertaining activities is Thea's Story Theater. Thea is a redhead in a purple dress with a flair for storytelling. Kids can read along with each of Thea's 10 stories, watch actors perform them, and answer the questions about the text that Thea occasionally asks. This activity shines because it works on so many different levels: kids learn how words behave in context, strengthen reading comprehension skills, and are entertained by some great stories that surpass the generic dross that occasionally gets banged out by software developers.Since this program's only focus is phonics, it isn't as multilayered as some other Curious George titles. And we were curious about what the heck happened to Curious George: We didn't see enough of him under the big top. Also, we think the lower end of the recommended age range is either the product of a delusional parent, or one that has a genius preschooler on his or her hands. (Ages 3 to 7) --Anne Erickson ...

1-0 out of 5 stars poorly designed, teaches nothing, difficult to play
This game is very poor compared to Reader Rabbit's Learn to read with Phonics or I can read with Phonics. I already had those two games but I read the following comments and thought I should get this one too. Not so! The games in here are ridiculous, teach very little phonics or reading, are difficult to master, and are all a waste. For those who like curious George, this game hardly ever shows George at all. I think the Reader Rabbits games are 1000% superior in every area in teaching kids phonics and reading. Skip this product, stick with Reader Rabbit, and you won't be stuck with it like I am.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good game, lower case letters and phonics!!
George is great for both boys and girls and the circus is a huge hit so there you have their attention!! The secret is to keep this as your one and only game at least for a good couple of months before you start buying the easy, fun entertainment-only games like Blues Clues etc.. That will give them a chance to love this game because it does make them think and you have to be there to help when they first start off. I don't think it is slow at all, the narration is just right and there is plenty of help from the ringmaster of the circus, kids just need to be told to click on his icon to get clues. Great for my 4 yr old that learns phonics in her Montessori pre-school. Tons of sweet stories about circus animals for them to just listen to when they are tired of the phonics. I love this!!

4-0 out of 5 stars More 'work' than 'game' -- but still a valuable CD
This CD lacks the color and the adventure of the Reader Rabbit CDs, but it makes up for thru it's phonics drills. It's one after another with little talking which is why my children burn out on it fast. I don't see that as a bad thing, tho, as children learn in quick bursts and then like a break from the drill-like phonic questions. Which is probably why they can play Reader Rabbit games for hours because it's less ceribral and more game-orientated.

I love Reader Rabbit, and thank god for it, but I like this CD, too. I 'make' my 4 and 5 year old play it a little bit every day and it improves their phonics and then they can play Reader Rabbit afterward as a reward. *G*

Worth the money. Helpful. Not a CD you regret buying if better reading and phonics is your goal. But not a CD the kids will be begging to play 24/7.

5-0 out of 5 stars It works and works well!
3/16/2001:
I wanted to teach my just turned five-year-old daughter how to read, but her current selection of books and educational software was just not meeting the challenge. Sure, the Winnie the Pooh, Blue's Clues, My Personal Tutor software, etc did an excellent job of motivating her and teaching her the alphabet. She really enjoyed all the Dr. Seuss and Winnie the Pooh books, but all these resources were just not cutting it in regards to getting her to read by herself. After extensive trial and error this is what I found work for my daughter.

I found Reader Rabbit's Complete Learn to Read System and Curious George Learns Phonics invaluable at teaching her to sound out her words all by herself. One small note on Curious George Learns Phonics, my daughter did not like the software. It actually made her work for once, so I usually had to be nearby to answer any questions. I would recommend using Reader Rabbit for a few days before introducing Curious George.

After about a week or so I began using the flash cards included in Reader Rabbit to have my daughter memorize beginning words. I would also have her write the words in her notebook. I particularly found helpful the list with Reader Rabbit on which order I should have her learn her words.

When I felt she should probably be ready to read very easy sentences I had her start out with Bob Books First! Level A, Set 1, although I would highly, highly recommend the entire set. Bob Books seemed to be the only books easy enough for my daughter to read by herself and progress at a reasonable rate. She loves the books!...

I have some final thoughts. Firstly, the Reader Rabbit and Bob Books are fine quality products but are a bit overpriced in my estimation. They are STILL well worth the investment. Secondly, you would think there would be some product or resource out there to help teach your child to read. I needed not generalities but a highly specific course of actions. I was quite disappointed in that respect, but I would be interested if such a product or resource exists.

Updated 11/28/2002:
It's been two years now and it is time to teach my son to read. Apparently, Reader Rabbit Complete Learn to Read System is no longer in production. That is too bad. It is very good educational software.

Still, Curious George Learns Phonics is the sleeper education software in existence. It's not perfect and the kiddies tend not to like it. However, it is challenging and teaches them phonemic awareness very well.

I have tried "Teach your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons" due to several recommendations from individuals reading my reviews. I used it with my son and I didn't like it. Subsequently I was informed from first grade teachers (my daughter's included) and my education courses that apparently research shows that coded words (Distar conventions, e.g. e with a line over it, double oo, like the pronunciation key of a dictionary) teaches kiddies to read best. I discovered this first hand when my daughter brought home her homework to code some words. I didn't have a clue how to help her. Maybe it's just a case that daddy isn't smart enough to help his daughter.

I found myself already using some of the techniques from "Teach your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons" that I had discovered by trial and error worked with my kiddies. In any case, I still haven't used the book.

I have finally found a set of books to use after the Bob Books are all used up. I found the kiddies needed a little more structured practice before they where off reading whatever we have around the house. It is the "Now I'm Reading" series by Nora Gaydos. ... ... Read more

Start kids off right with this completely thorough phonics program. This program teaches phonics with a systematic progression, beginning with simple animal sounds, then progressing to letter sounds. These are the first steps toward real reading. There are fun activities like Get on Track, in which kids must move Letterbod along the track to learn the correct way to form all 26 letters. In Bingo, kids compete against Mack the Mouse to boost skills, and learn to recognize consonants, vowels, and blended sounds. Kids learn phonemes--the building blocks of phonics--as they slide letter clusters and combinations into place to make more than 300 words. A special parents' section lets you customize the program to match your child's learning needs or school curriculum, and access detailed reports on your child's progress. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars well organized, poor voice talent
I bought this for my 8 year old to improve his spelling in English. The spelling skills sections are well organized and levels can be changed, the program allows time for reactions...BUT...the character voice talent also used for some of the spelling cannot clearly pronounce the "s" sound, and to a lesser extent the "t" sound. I can't see the point of using a voice saying "shtay" or "ath" and expecting children to know that this means "stay or "at".

4-0 out of 5 stars Curious George is a hit!
I use this CD in my second grade classroom. Students love the familiar "Curious George" character, which keeps them entertained.

3-0 out of 5 stars pretty good, but difficult mouse commands
We have several Reader Rabbit titles. Our kids, ages 4 and 5, have benefitted greatly from them. However, this title has a poor mouse interface. It is very difficult to operate, and requires obscure keyboard commands to do what is needed. As an adult, even after a detailed reading of the instructions, I found it impossible to operate the interface, and was quite upset and frustrated. Overall, I would advise a potential buyer to consider RR Toddler (great), Kindergarten and 1st Grade (Excellent), but to look further for a 2nd grade software product.

4-0 out of 5 stars My son loves this CD
This is the fourth CD we have bought in the Reader Rabbit series. My son just loves to play with these CDs. He is very intent to conquer "the game" when he first gets a new CD...but with the Reader Rabbit series...he keeps coming back for more. What I like about these CDs is the child can play them at one level of understanding at first, but then go back and find new and interesting things as their learning progresses. And how could I ever forget...the golden nugget beneath it all...these CDs really teach valuable skills that help my son in school! ... Read more
