A-N-I-M-A-L-S is a groundbreaking educational game with a unique purpose:To help children learn to read as easily and as naturally as they learn to speak. While they are playing--hitting keys to make pictures of animals appear on the screen--the game has children practicing the fundamental principles of written language, so they learn by doing.
This hands-on alternative to the usual methods lets children start much earlier and gain proficiency faster. And it's also more fun!
Features include:Based on research by leading scientists and educators. Precise feedback throughout guides exploration so children learn quicker.
Designed so children play before they can use the mouse.Three progressive levels so each child can start with the right challenge.Uses recorded voices of native speakers. Multiple languages: currently English, French, German and Spanish. Illustrated with hundreds of photographs of animals, plants, toys,tools, etc.
Here are some key features of "ANIMALS":
recognizing the letters they see, and matching them to sounds
recognizing the words they see on the screen, and remembering their meaning
typing the letters needed to spell the words they see.
Advanced level: in addition to hearing each letter as it is typed and the whole word at the end, children now also hear the word spoken as they build it. Currently for English and Spanish, requires MacinTalk.
Add children's favorite people (or animals, objects, etc.) by simple drag-and-drop.
Misc. enhancements and fixes.
