Macworld (Aug 01, 1997)
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.
