Just like Chutes and Ladders, there are shortcuts that move you forward and hazards that move you back. Winners get to choose a flavor of ice cream they eat by clicking. When the ice cream is gone, you can either play another game or choose another activity in a CD-Rom that is sure to delight children who enjoy the adventures of Arthur in books or on TV.

Children work their way through different scenes on Arthur and D.W.'s trip to the ice cream store, playing games that help them match words with their corresponding pictures (they can also watch and listen as the scenes unfold automatically). My five-year-old's reading skills showed no measurable improvement--he worked his way through most scenes by trial and error, pointing and clicking without using any spelling or reading skills. Even so, he and his two-year-old sister were endlessly amused by the animations. I suppose it's a testament to Arthur's entertainment value that they spent hours jostling for the control of the mouse like good sibling rivals.
If your kids are just learning to read, then this is a must-have program for your (or their) home library. I would suggest that you get a printed copy of the book as well. That will help to make their learning experience with Arthur a well-rounded one.
