With rollovers that show synonyms for vocabulary words, your child will actually learn hundreds of words while reading!
As your kiddo reads through the chapters, they must help the orphs. After completing jobs, your child can visit the orph settlement. The goal of the game is to rescue as many orphs as possible.
In addition to be a READING ADVENTURE, this book is also an ACADEMIC TREASURE. Intertwined nearly flawlessly are hundreds of lessons on math, science, grammar, vocabulary, thinking skills, and character. There are also lessons on life skills and the art. Here are a few screen shots demonstrating the different learning that is going on while playing the game:
Thirdly, this program is a REWARDING GAME. Players earn Goldstars which are the currency of the woodlands. They are used to build a settlement for the orphs. By choosing the best strategy, the settlement that is built can sustain more orphs.
Take some time to check out this program on Facebook at on Twitter. You honestly cannot beat the price of this program, and I don't think you have anything to lose by giving it a try. Even if your child only read and did the vocabulary, you would find it money well spent for something they are learning and enjoying!
P.S. I was also very impressed with the customer service. I had a basic question (that I didn't understand do the fact that I didn't watch the intro video as instructed -- duh!) and was given almost an immediate response.
