Review:

The Random House website has games and activities related to the hundreds of children's books series published by Random House, including Junie B Jones, Barbie, Magic Tree House, and Dora the Explorer. The site offers basic games and activities that young children may enjoy such as matching games, word searches, coloring games and other entry level games. There is marketing in some of the games in that the activity may start or end by encouraging the purchase of a specific book related to the game.

Though the site's games sometimes use generic graphics and show technical errors, the site as a whole is a good place to find activities for three- to ten-year-old fans of specific books and characters.
