Is It Any Good?

Our review:

This charming learning adventure is a perfect fit for preschoolers who are new to the computer. The mechanics of the games are extremely simple, and only require moving and clicking the computer mouse. The learning games are leveled: The easy level is for children as young as 3, medium is for 4- and 5-year-olds, and difficult is for 5- and 6-year-olds. The software provides help when children are struggling, and offers positive feedback.

World Adventure! is full of multicultural learning gems. In each country, Dora teaches the player how to say hello in that country's language; the background music changes to reflect music typical of that country; Dora dresses in native costume with the player's help; and the scenery provides children with a sense of what that foreign country looks like. World Adventure! delivers an outstanding computer adventure that teaches young children about the world.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
