5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful computer animation and fun story
Kids don't usually learn much science (in public school anyway) and this computer game REALLY helps to fill that void. It is educational, VERY attractively designed, interesting, and my [...] daughter really enjoys it! It's not too hard either.

5-0 out of 5 stars A good blend of storytelling and fun
We got "Math Blaster" for our six-year-old, who has been a very savvy computer user since he was 18 months old.It was so difficult to maneuver the character (jump over wrong answers, run through correct ones) he actually cried over it.
5-0 out of 5 stars My 5 year old adores this game!
My 5 year old son love the Mia character and the stories. He loves the math(which does involve time), too! Even though the age group for this game is 6-10, he had no problems on Level 1. He only needed a little help with the time telling. As for the people that say this isn't educational enough I would say that it's not boring! My son has played the game over and over and never tires of Mia! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Graphics are excellent but game sucks.
The creators of Mia's Reading Adventure would be better engaged creating movies and not children's games. There is just way too much expository and not enough interaction to make this worth your child's effort. If you're looking to teach your pre-k/k child reading skills I'd recommend the Blue's Clues games instead. Any older children would probably get as frustrated as mine did.

3-0 out of 5 stars Content is ok but without state saving
I bought this CD for my 5 years daughter. She likes it but it is quite hard for her to progress. Everytime you need to spend a few minutes to listen to the sing without a way to get rid of it. There is no state save function in the game, every time you need to start from the begin.

3-0 out of 5 stars useful as a game, but not to learn to read or help with the process
I thought this game would be useful to help my daughter start with the reading process, but that is not the case. As a game it's pretty entertaining, and it has very subtle clues that makes children have to think and look farther beyond.I would place the correct ages for this game between 6 and a half and eight and a half years old.

I love how this comes with 3 CD roms so my daughter won't get bored with one. This computer game is very challenging but still fun enough to keep my daughter playing for hours!

5-0 out of 5 stars Jumpstart Advanced 4th Grade Problem
Normally this is a great product. I have purchased K-3 without any problems but this year there is a problem that requires a patch. Calling their helpdesk is somewhat useless since they promise to send you a link but never do. Here is the link I found on my own: [...]. The problem that I experienced was a white screen then if you click a key there is an introduction that has a lady speaking about the cave's history. Then it freezes. This link should solve you problem. Just download and run.

4-0 out of 5 stars GREAT!
We bought this for our 3 year old, and she was able the pick up on it very quickly!It has helped prepare her for preschool tremendously!We are going to get her the Kindergarten one for Christmas this year.

1-0 out of 5 stars This is a total waste
For Christmas, I purchased this item for my two and half year old son, who is fairly advanced for his age. The program is reccomended for 2-4.I was totally disappointed in this product.Before you begin to use the product, the child is given an assessment test, which was fairly good.However, it gave you the illusion that the program would be like that, when it is not.Your child is scored and based on the score, the questions are supposed to be geared toward the skills that the child does not know or needs improvement on.First of all the programs were difficult to understand for most adults (my husband and I are both college educated).Both my husband and myself sat down with my son and could not figure out the concept of the games.My son was easily bored with the product and seemed disinterested.He seemed to prefer some of his other computer software, (School Zone(preschool) and Disney for Toddlers.I would tell anyone to invest their money in another software. ...

This game is great!After buying Mia Reading I thought it was a great idea to get my 2 girls to start learning Spanish since we live in a global village. They game was easy to load, easy to navigate and the level was perfect for beginners. The high quality 3D animation will blow you away. Even my husband who learned 3D animation at the Vancouver Film School was blown away. The best part is, that they love playing it as they think it is a game. They forget they're learning numbers and vocab and how to put together simple sentences. Well recommended. ... Read more

I bought this for my 6 yr. old grandson who just completed kindergarten. However, his favorite activity in kindergarten was computer lab so I decided to give him the opportunity to use a computer at home. I purchased Reader Rabbit 1st Grade. My opinion about the program is mixed.

1-0 out of 5 stars Tedious game-play with little emphasis on learning
The problem with this game starts with the introductury movie... it develops slowly, goes on forever, suffers from disconnected animation and does little to set up the ridiculous premise for game play.
2-0 out of 5 stars Really disappointed
I guess I'm spoiled by the I Spy games I've purchased for my children. This game has an enormous amount of "story"...it's almost as bad as sitting your child in front of the television. Interaction is confusing and frustrating. I'd rate this lower but it's clear that a lot of work went into the animation, which is top notch. I just wouldn't classify this as a learning game.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun Game But Requres Good Hand Coordination
I purchased this game for my 3 year old who already reads a little and knows her numbers well. I hoped this game would help her learn addition. She loves to play it, but several of the games require hand coordination beyond her ability (the hand cart one in particular, as noted by another reviewer), and catching bubbles. It was frustrating to me because she knew the proper answer but could not "execute" because her movements were too slow. Over time, she has improved enough to play most of the games on level one. The game is very engaging ang the graphics well-done, but the educational part is under-emphasized. The game that "teaches" addition involves frogs jumping to lily-pads and my daughter is so focused on the frogs that the addition lesson is hardly noticed. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Reader Rabbit 2nd Grade
A+ rating from my 7 year old boy.He's had other Reader Rabbit software and this one is right up his alley.There are plenty of levels for him to be challenged by and when you initially begin the program it gives the child an "assessment" so they know what level to start him off with.If he gets stuck in one level, he can skip to another part of the game doing something else and come back to what he was doing.It's perfect for a child who is high energy.This program is challenging, not too easy for him, which is good.He sneaks off to his room to play this program, just what he needs as an "educational treat."He loves the music and there's plenty of visual rewards!At any time, I can pull up and see a chart that tells me how far he's completed each task, that's really great.He will play this CD for an hour or more and not because I've asked him to.I've found his confidence level is higher now too, the CD has lots of verbal reinforcement and encouragement.I think the 2nd grade level is very appropriate too, some 2nd grade programs are too easy or hard...this one seems like it has a wide range to accommodate all second graders.I highly recommend this program for all children, especially active boys who love a challenge.BUY IT, BUY IT, BUY IT!

5-0 out of 5 stars Works with Special Needs Kids
I was amazed that after only about 2 weeks of playing with this, my 2 year old son was actually able to figure out the games.He has severe language difficulties, sensory issues and behavior problems.Usually he could not sit long enough to play a computer game because there was not enough interaction for him.He loves this game and points to the computer all the time to try to tell me he wants to play.He is actually trying to "count" to 5 with the game and "sing" (in his own gibber-jabber language)some of the songs. There is no exact mouse clicking to frustrate him.Anything close works!This is an awesome game for toddlers to feel like the big kids and not be frustrated.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun program, nice songs
It is quite a stretch to call this 'pre-school'.My 4 year old quickly became bored with it, and the math sequence is interminable and goes on for what seems like forever.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Educational Product
If you are using this for educational purposes, you need to go to the parent options portion of the software.I had my son and daughter take the assessment test.You can see how they do on the leveling section.Then if you go to the Report card, you can select what you want your child to work on.There are LOTS of options to pick from, sentence building, syllables, parts of speech, addition, subtraction, money, earth science, and on.I could really zone in on what my son was not good at, parts of speech, (identifing noun, verb, adjective) and sentence building.He kept scoring low on money also, but he would say it was easy.I watched him and realized he wasn't picking the largest coins first.Once he did that his score improved.I think the software is a great tool, BUT the parents have to spend a little time each day selecting which section of the software you want your child to do.Otherwise, they are just playing random games.But, picking out the sections only takes less than 1 minute.I am buying 2nd grade reading softwre today!

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT
This is by far the most poorly designed software I have ever purchased. I actually purchased this at Costco, but since they don't allow reviews on their site, I am writing it here. 1.) Terrible Install - I am running Windows XP and have two drives in my computer: a CD drive and a DVD drive. I initially installed on the CD drive, but then was unable to get the software to work since many of the dll files could not be seen since the software wasn't smart enough to look at the drive it was installed from. I initially tried registering the dlls to no avail. Then I installed the software on the other drive. This finally worked. 2.) Unintuitive Interface - You are given a number of choices when you start, but you aren't told that you must go in a certain order. You end up starting games where you cannot do anything because you haven't passed some pre-requisite. There are very few mouse overs labels either, so you don't know what you are clicking until you actual click it. Obviously a child is not going to be able to read these, but I would think they would have them for the parent's sake.3.) Bugs Galore - There were many instances where we started a game that just ended up not working properly. For example, there is a soccer game that asked you to pick the sound or word in a goal or soccer ball. Well, there was no letters to be displayed and even when you clicked on the items nothing happened. 4.) Memory Leaks - Another thing that was made me pretty angry was the error that appears every time I close the program. It is a dialog with the title "Smart Heap Library" and has the message "MEM_BAD_POINTER". I am a software developer by trade and all I can say is that this kind of error has the potential to overwrite or corrupt files on your computer or crash your system.Needless to say, it was very frustrating for my son and I. Apparently this software has been out since 2002, so I assumed that any bugs had been worked out. I really don't know what to say about the quality assurance of this company, but I will be very cautious before I buy another product from them.

I have a First Grader who has difficulty being taught anything by family members so Jump Start First Grade is great for him. The program was easy for him to use and he stayed with it for over an hour the first time he sat down with it.Now he loves it and asks to play all the time.He really lit up when I told him once he learned all the things on the cd he'd be one of the smartest kids in his class and be able to help some of the other kids.I wish I would have gotten this during the summer before he started first grade ...

3-0 out of 5 stars What happended to the old version?
I must admitt I have never played "this" version of the game before, but I have played the old one. You we're lost in a haunted forest, trying to find secret keys to unlock the mystery that lied in an evil witches house. I admitt it was a tad scary, but it was fun and shouldn't have been modified. BUY THE OLD VERSION.

5-0 out of 5 stars Jump Start 4TH GRADE ADVANCED
I rented this software from the Library.It is a 3 disc program. My 3rd grader (almost 4th grader) loves the Ultimate Field Trips and Mystery Club volume 3.The fundamentals disc is a little too hard for her right now, so it is challenging.I played it because it looked fun and it was fun for me to play.I love the "mystery" tone of the software.I like these programs because there are fun games that do not get boring, and while your kids are playing the games, they are also learning a lot.I am going to purchase this software and the 3rd grade ADVANCED program so my child can review through the summer. ...
