With Miss Spider's Scavenger Hunt, kids jump inside an enchanting microscopic world, based on David Kirk's Miss Spider books (and TV show), to hunt for nature objects and play unique games with fanciful animated bugs. The games explore keyboarding, math, music, spelling, hand-eye coordination, and logic skills and themed to fit within the insect world. Both the activities and the story mode can be played on three levels of difficulty, so the game has plenty of replayability.

Scavenger Huntwas created by Kutoka, known for constructing breathtaking visuals. This software continues that tradition, with scenes full of sparkling water, lush vegetation, and bug characters that are whimsical instead of scary.

Did we miss something on diversity?
