My Take on the Game
Being that Diva-J is now in school, she does whatever she can to simply eat up knowledge. From spelling with me on the couch to reading books, to practicing handwriting (never my subject!), she tries hard every step that she can. In knowing this, I found this game to be both fun and interactive.

I know that though some kids are motivated to learn outside of school, others need a little motivation, and this game gives that motivation. Through fun graphics and games, the player is taken into a world of learning (in a fun and interactive way).

In giving this game to Diva-J, she sat down and jumped right into the game and stayed there for a while. She did not seem to have many difficulties understanding what to do and the game kept her engaged for some time. I will say though that this game is geared for younger children than her and she found the game a bit easy (in her words). I think though that for someone like Diva-PJ who is going to be 3 next year, this game would be perfect!

Overall, a great game, and one that I would recommend, especially if you have a younger child just learning their ABC's.

If this game sounds like something you would like in your own home you can find it on Amazon!
