A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a great bundle of software and learning aids for first-graders, but most of the content isn't new.
Is It Any Good?
Capers on Cloud Nine! is not new software -- it was released in 2001 as Reader Rabbit 1st Grade: Capers on Cloud Nine! and then marketed in 2002 as Reader Rabbit 1st Grade>. However, it remains the top first-grade title. Eight fabulous learning games that teach about art, math, science, and language arts are seamlessly woven into the fabric of the adventure.
Some of the academics can be challenging for kids just starting first grade, so it might be better to introduce this software during the middle of the year, or as a review before starting second grade.
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.
