The Family Circus: On Vacation in the British Isles
In The Family Circus: On Vacation in the British Isles (Context Systems, Inc.) the main menu, a graphic of a map, displays England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. Choose one and you get a short video. Zoom in and you get a more specific map with icons for Culture, Daily Life, History, or Landmarks. Each one offers a photo and a few sentences of information. Click again and you get a tiny bit more information. There’s also a coloring book and a print function. There’s just not much here; what there is is only mildly entertaining and educational, but think of this as an appetizer. If you (and your kids) want the main course, you’ll need a book.
