Thanks to the unique mouse-over reading function, my four-year-old daughter picked up on the concept quickly. Where she would normally employ me to help her figure out the instructions to other computer games she plays, ItzaZoo's interactive reading tool empowers her to teach herself. The quick "reward system" seems to help too. ItzaZoo rewards the child with gold stars when they complete a short task. Other games my daughter has played tend to make her finish a lengthy trial (albeit with character encouragement throughout) before she receives her reward.
