From a telescope to view stars to a chalkboard with colored chalk for drawing, from pictures that talk to a synthesizer that simulates orchestral instruments, it's all just a point-and-click away. Players may choose a male or female on-screen character to explore this rich, full environment. Excellent sound effects.
Every child will find at least one thing to enjoy in this game and maybe even more than one.
This title is the seventh one in the Active Minds Series from Broderbund. This is a series of programs that are designed to help motivate children to develop their educational skills while having a positive experience in a non-threatening environment. Learning while having fun is, in my opinion, the best way to learn. This program accomplishes that goal in very fine form. It goes a long way in helping young minds increase their knowledge. It goes a long way because it is a good program.
