Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this is good edutainment for children ages 4-6. The software weaves learning games into an adventure about rescuing a missing wolf pup. The 10 activities can be played repeatedly; the overall adventure, however, does not change. Because Dora and Diego are bilingual, kids will learn some Spanish.

What's it about?

Diego, Dora the Explorer's cousin with his own TV show, shares his animal smarts and thirst for adventure with preschoolers in GO DIEGO GO: WOLF PUP RESCUE. Players join Diego as he searches for a wolf pup lost in the rain forest. The search takes kids to 10 locations on the way to the rain forest; at each, they play a game or solve a puzzle to help Diego. As kids complete each activity within the rescue mission, it unlocks so that they can play it independently from the mission.

Is it any good?


For families looking for good preschool edutainment on their computer, Go Diego Go: Wolf Pup Rescue is an excellent choice. The activities are all age-appropriate and offered on three levels of difficulty. The software doesn't teach young kids how to use a mouse, but the activities are uncomplicated and provide good mouse practice for computer newbies. The game looks like Diego's TV show, and because Diego and Dora reinforce certain concepts in English as well as Spanish, preschoolers learn a little Spanish as they play.

Kids also learn a lot about animals. One clever activity teaches preschoolers about the concepts of "left" and "right" as they steer Diego and Dora down the river in a raft. While most preschoolers will enjoy finding the wolf pup more than once and will like playing the activities, the game includes only one mission; the longevity of the software is somewhat limited.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the wide variety of animals found in the rainforests around the world. In the game, kids help Diego look for animal tracks. Kids might want to look for animal tracks in their own back yards. The wild animals in this software appear to be friendly. Parents might want to remind kids why they should never approach wild animals. Families might want to discuss how pets have been tamed and how they differ in temperament from animals in the wild.
