Between the ages of 2 and 3, kids discover the connection between moving the mouse and making something happen on a computer screen. Choosing appropriate software for youngsters who are just starting to use the computer can be a challenge because many programs are too advanced. Shelly's My First Computer Game, for ages 3 to 6, is an excellent choice.

This special software introduces preschoolers to the computer environment while teaching them how to play in that environment. It makes it easy for even the youngest kids to pick up computers thanks to Shelly and the supportive, no-fail environment she creates for kids to practice their computer skills. Find it online at

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.
