MacMillian Dictionary for Children

MacMillian Dictionary for Children (Simon & Schuster Interactive, ages 6 – 10) scored some hits and some misses. On the “Hits” side, you’ll find 12,000 words included with their definitions. Searching is easy and you can create your own list of words to study (you have to save them to a clipboard). Lots of stills, audio clips, and a number of videos supply the multimedia elements. For “Misses”: the main icons are not easily understood; only the word, not the definition, is read, leaving little kids at a disadvantage; there is no index of multimedia components, and printing is awkward (go to the clipboard, paste to Word). Overall, kids found plenty to do in this program and quite enjoyed using it, especially those 7 and older.

– May 1995
