This maths program, aimed at about 4 to 7 years old children comes in a very attractive cover. The idea is to encourage children to add, subtract, divide and multiply fairly simple sums. There are five well-designed levels of difficulty taking you from simple addition only up to two figure multiplication and division.

Very good, you might say, but my children *hate* arithmetic! Well, I think you'll find that children will *want* to do sums with this program! This is because every time they get it right their figure moves through the forest towards home. Beware getting it wrong else the wolf moves towards the house and may end up eating you! This is what the kiddies love and mine certainly loved this program.

The graphics and sound effects are good enough to hold their attention, and I can recommend this program to parents who are looking for this educational software for their children.
