5-0 out of 5 stars Fun For All Ages
Our whole family found this software very entertaining. It was purchased for my daughter who is only three years old. We have been teaching her the organs/bones and function of the parts of the body and this CD is a wonderfully fun and amusing way to learn about the body. It can be enjoyed by all ages, if the child is too young to manipulate the software alone simply work with your child and it is an activity you can share. Mr. Skinless leads us through a wonderfuly animated journey of assembling the body, while at the same time answering questions in the form of a quiz show narrated by Mr. Skinless, he is most amusing. If extra help is needed there is great notes and graphics to teach about the body. We have approximately 20+ CD's for children and I would rate the graphics in on this CD by far the best. There is a fabulous activity for children to spend the day giving Mr.Skinless activities to do while at the same time monitoring his hunger, thirst and energy level. The objective is to supply him with the appropriate level of food, beverage and rest to sustain him for the day. The graphics while he performs the various activities, are most entertaining. Lastly there is a beat the bomb feature where you get a timed activity to build the human body, all the organs and the bones before the bomb goes off. As I said a little knowledge provided to the child and this can be enjoyed by all children ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars phenomenal program for budding amateur astronomers...
i've had starry night beginner for about a year and i love it. if you're just getting into astronomy and you are completely (or at least partly) baffled by handheld star charts...this program will make it ultra-easy for you to find whatever heavenly body you're looking for. it's an amazing program...very addictive. it's one of the most frequently used programs on my computer. i'm an old man, but this would be a terrific program for kids who are curious about the sky. with this program and a pair of binoculars...you'll be able to find and observe just about everything up there. highly recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyment Beyond Belief!!!
Being a United States Merchant Master Mariner, I am required to use and be proficient at celestial navigation. That is finding my position on a boat or ship by using celestial bodies at night as well as the day. All though we have depended on electronic navigation for most all of these tasks for years, a master must know his celestial navigation. If his boat batteries or electical system ever fail or the equipment ever fails which happens more often than one would think. There lies the reason I found originally bought this software, because I found books and other aids so complicated I was getting more confused than help.

On a good night (very clear) there are so many stars it is hard to pick out the big dipper. On a bad (overcast) night you are lucky to find the moon. With this software, you simply plug in your estimated location, the date and time and it shows you a great moving clestial map in several formats that my 7 year old nieces were having no problem using the program in minutes. No telescope or extra equipment is required but a pair of binoculars helped pick out some of the weaker stars.

Books, aids, educational toys helped in the past learn and helped pick out the stars but on this one night, two 7 year olds and a 50 year old Master Mariner and his wife became experts (in our minds) in finding the constellations, major stars, planets and even satalites. I have never had such a good time with my family, and never felt so good about my professional ability.

I am ready for the advanced versions of this product now and can not wait to buy a good telescope to get get to a level of a good amature astronomer. I am afraid my nieces are on the way to astophysics they are enjoying it so much. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars GREATEST GEOGRAPHY TOOL EVER!!
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

4-0 out of 5 stars Great educational value for the price!
At $9.99, the Earth Scount software was a great value and has helped my 5 year old homeschooler begin to familiarize herself with the names and locations of continents, countries, oceans etc. in a fun and self directed way. I would recommend it as a great way to start kids off, or as a great review for older kids! There are lot of interesting facts about historical attractions in the countries and kids can "collect" pictures of said attractions as they globe trot. Very neat! Wish I had had this as child! ...
