What's it about?

CBEEBIES SHOW ME SHOW ME is based on a BBC kids' television show which \"explores the magic of the every day.\" It features a small range of games and interactive stories. The activities are very simple and suited towards the youngest Web users, but the slow pace and simplicity are appreciated, compared to some sites that can be over-stimulating.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

With its beautifully drawn watercolor backgrounds and colorful, paper-cut characters reminiscent of Eric Carle, CBeebies Show Me Show Me is a delight to look at. The games and activities it offers are very simple, but age appropriate for your youngest online explorers. For example, in Cloud Hunt, kids are presented with a scrolling screen and asked to click on a cloud that looks like a leaf. When they find it, they're rewarded with a cute animation and a poem about clouds. It would be great if Show Me Show Me had bit a more content, but it works as a sweet place for kids to visit.

Families can talk about...
