Not for wolf lovers!

This game is a little bad because of betting to win back land. If you like wolves, check out Wolfquest.com.

What's it about?

In DIDI & DITTO FIRST GRADE: THE WOLF KING, Didi and Ditto, two little talking beavers, bring kids on an adventure with 16 games to practice reading, math, science and creativity. The beavers' world has been invaded by demanding, workaholic wolves. To oust them, Didi and Ditto bet the Wolf King that they are smarter than his wolf lieutenants. If they can beat the wolves at educational games, the Wolf King and his pack agree to leave.

Some are traditional games with an educational twist, such as dominoes adorned with scientific images instead of dots. Others use an arcade game format to teach: For example, kids sort living and inanimate objects by catching them as they fall over a waterfall. In addition to the Adventure Mode, which can be played on three different levels of difficulty, the software also offers a Teachers Mode with direct access to the 16 learning games and the ability to track students' progress.

Is it any good?

Kutoka is a children's software company that consistently produces high quality software. Unlike Disney and Atari, which roll out short software programs for kids with only five or six activities, this software provides a robust playground of 16 games. While a few aren't intuitive, all of the games take full advantage of the computer's unique ability to create exciting interactive learning.

And no company provides better graphics than Kutoka. It's like watching an animated movie.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about why the beavers and other animals wanted the wolves to leave their valley. They might also discuss the beavers' use of betting as a method of getting rid of their enemies. Is this a good way to get what you need?
