Kids Can Read
Discis Knowledge Research Inc. Kids Can Read series brings multimedia to a collection of classic and contemporary children’s literature. We looked at Aesop’s Fables and The Tale of Peter Rabbit. The program is the same for all of them: a basic Windows menu with options to customize the presentation and the langauge (English or Spanish). Basically, this is just a storybook read-aloud that can be re-configured to help your child learn pronunciation, the parts of speech, and vocabulary. But the illustrations are by the original artists, for these two titles Beatrix Potter and Arthur Rickham, and the narration is charming. Our testers seemed very content to spend time with them.
