5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good - even for kids
Dinosaur Hunter is a quality piece of work. Our 5 year old started playing with it when he was 4-1/2 (box lists age 10). He needed a good deal of handholding the first 3 months of constant playing (he really loves dinosaurs,and this was a perfect match), but after that point he was able to navigateand investigate on his own. He still loves the program. Even though thecontent is reasonably deep and fascinating for an adult, there is a lot ofinteractive work that a pre-reading younger kidcan enjoy. When clickingon dinosaurs, they will move and make the kinds of sounds that scientistswould expect from a studyof bone structures. There are a large number ofmovies, and there are many places where the program will read or pronouncenames. One day our son was walking in circles. Each time he came back intoview he was a different dinosaur with a different walk anda differentroar. A different day he walked into the room and asked my wife for helpfinding the caudal vertebra for theheterodontasaurus. Not for all kids,but our youngster loves it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful vocab and spelling booster
My First Incredible Amazing Dictionary is exactly what I was looking for to teach my 5 year old reading and vocabulary.It is a straight forward but well designed list of about 1000 first words.The words are presented in a list with pictures, and when he clicks on the picture the word comes out.The dictionary pronounces the word, pronounces the entire explanation, then shows an animated picture that demonstrates the meaning of the word.It is wonderful for homeschooling or just to give the child an edge in school.My boy spent about 10 hours clicking around it when I first showed him the game.Now, I am currently making him go through 16 words a day, in alphabetical order, to write each word down as he listens to its pronunciation and meaning. I give him a small candy as a reward afterwards, and he doesn't mind doing it because the animated pictures are very interesting, and all different.I think this is an excellent idea from DK and definitely wonderful teaching tool.Besides the dictionary, it also has word games, but my son isn't ready for it now.He will be!5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Vocabulary Development Software for pre-k to 3rd
Dorling-Kindersley's My First Amazing Incredible Dictionary is an absolute delight! Pre-readers up through 3rd graders (or so) will find this software easy to use and intriguing. The graphics, animation, and sounds are mesmerizing. Any child who can point and click can easily entertain himself for at least 30 minutes at at time. After clicking on a letter of the alphabet, the child is taken to a page with pictures of words for that letter, arranged in dictionary format. A click on any picture sends the child to the page for that word. The child then has the option to click on the word itself or the word's definition, which will result in voicing of the text. The child can click on the large colorful photgraph or cartoon drawing depicting the word. The fun is in discovering what will happen with this click. Will it be animation of the picture, a sound or both? Whatever the case, children are usually delighted.The vocabulary items include the obligatory concrete nouns, but also abstract verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and prepostions. There are easy links provided for words with the same spelling but different meanings. I have used this software with hearing impaired, speech impaired, and learning disabled children at work as a speech/language pathologist. All of them loved it.Besides the dictionary, there are games that children will find fun to try alone or with a friend. Enjoy!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The real point of this
    The real point of this CD is no longer to get the latest information and updates on new attractions in what is now a very different WDW.The point is to take you back as if in a time capsule to the long-lost Disney World of the mid-90's, when Walt's influence could still be felt.So many of our favorite attractions are gone now...20,000 Leagues, the Dreamfinder, Tiki Birds, the Fantasyland Sky Ride, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, the Carousel of Progress, the Main St. Electrical Parade, etc, etc.,... even Walt's biographical exhibit.This CD will bring much of that back.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Do a Justice to the WDW!
    I bought this item because of my love for Walt Disney World. I thought that it would be a great way to in a way "visit" it when I really wished that I could be there. On the main screen, you see anoverview of the entire park. All of the parks, resorts, shopping districts, and some rides are shown. You can then choose to take a guided tour (an annoying woman narrator shows you rides within a theme i.e. Big Thrills) or you can explore the world yourself. The graphics are not terrific, and the rides are outdated (Extra-terror-estrial Alien Encounter is still there and Primevial Whirl in Animal Kingdom is missing and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is there too! ). If you're someone who is missing Disney, I would strongly suggest buying a book, listening to a podcast, or visiting the Disney World website instead! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars GREATEST GEOGRAPHY TOOL EVER!!
    WOW!! I can't believe this product has been discontinued. It is the greatest, most fun way to learn U.S. and world geography I've found. I'm trying to find a second CD Rom because the thought of not having one if ours gets ruined, practically gives me hives! My first child learned her states, capitals, countries, and flags by playing against me or the clock when she was in 4th grade. My second daughter is in 4th grade now and we're still using this tool. She has 90% of the world's countries and regions memorized and can beat anyone she challenges. We don't even look at this as school (we homeschool), but more as a game. The whole family plays. We've recommended it to friends and teachers and everyone loves it. Please, please, bring it back.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great learning tool for Middle/High SchoolGeography
    My older son used this software to learn maps of the world for tests in middle school World Geography.I started looking for it again when by younger son started the same class 4 years later, we wanted an updated version.I am stupified that this product isn't on every educational software site because it is SO WONDERFUL.Read more
