Review:
All the first grade’s a stage and all the players learners in this grade-based, multi-subject program starring the marquee back-to-basics bunny himself. About to premier a variety show, Reader Rabbit discovers that the stage props and supplies mysteriously have disappeared. Heading off on any of the four paths from Town Square (each lead to a different subject area), kids help to collect items so the show can go on. Fun-filled activities include money-counting, character-identifying, days-of-the-week figuring, and script-writing activities. Math puzzles and lessons add up at Papa Bear’s Store, for instance, while Pierre’s Studio hosts music, acting and drawing—all in colorfully compelling animation. And games adjust in difficulty to keep pace with your child’s progress.
