Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (15 ):

Kids will learn a lot of math by playing this software. Many of the problems provide math manipulatives, so children can experiment with on-screen objects to learn math concepts. If a problem stumps a child, a character arrives to help. The activities can be played on three levels of difficulty.

While the title suggests that this software is appropriate for kindergarteners, it is not. Many of the math activities assume mastery of math skills that kindergarteners are just beginning to learn.

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.
