This set of 2 CD-ROMs is exceptional. It's a surprise birthday party for Sam the Lion. Reader Rabbit and his friends need your help to get ready for the party. Throughout Wordville, there are characters who need help making the preparations. There are 4 main areas to explore -- Papa Bear's Store, Babs' Kitchen, Professor Owl's Tree House, and Pierre's Studio -- each with 2 activities. Decorate cookies, sort treats, teach mice dance steps, and do so much more in Reader Rabbit Thinking Adventures. Children will help Pierre with painting wrapping paper or banners, Bab with decorating cookies, Papa Bear with sorting toys or wrapping gifts, and much more. Children will learn patterning, identifying similarities and differences, sequencing, problem solving, matching, ordering, and other skills while planning a party.
Reader Rabbit Thinking Adventures Ages 4-6 uses ADAPT Learning Technology, which is a dynamic system that continually adjusts the program to match a player's changing abilities. Each activity features clear adjustable difficulty levels as well. The Learning Company has made it so that the program recognizes 527 names in their most common spellings, and throughout
the program, Reader Rabbit calls your child by name (as long as it is one of the 527). Players also enter their birthday in the calendar, and if they play the program on their birthday, they are in for a little surprise.
Toy Sort involves helping Papa Bear organize toys into hula-hoops, very much like Venn diagrams. In level 1, the hoops are non-intersecting, and are intersecting on level 2. There are 3 intersecting hoops on level 3. In Gift Wrapper, children attempt to make their presents look either the same or different than the given ones. They must select from different shapes and sizes of boxes, wrapping paper, bows, and tags. Kids help Babs make treat bags in Treat Time, and they must sort the different treats in arrays. Cookie Creator is great fun, and an exercise for the brain at the same time. Players must copy the designs on the cookies that Babs has made. At the easiest level, kids can put the different decorations on the cookies in any order, but as the levels increase, the order makes a difference, so children must learn to plan ahead. In Mouse Dance, Mat and her friends are practicing dances for the party, and kids help the mice perform the correct dance steps. Donkey Directions features a grid map and players must choose a sequence of direction icons to help Mat move to the donkey. Wrapping Paper Painter requires players to complete patterns that Pierre the raccoon has started. These patterns vary from simple to complex, depending on the difficulty level. In Banner Builder, kids help Pierre make cards different than the ones next to them in one way, in two ways, and in one and two ways. Solving these puzzles will earn words for the banner.
The program also automatically adapts to the child's skill level. All activities provide 3 levels of challenge that can be easily set on screen. The program also has progress tracking that will allow the parent to see just how far the child has explored the different activities and what level of challenge he or she is able to do.
