"This is one of the best interactive CD's for kids I have ever seen... It is fun. It is humorous. It is educational. And it has heaps of content to keep you and your kids amused for hours."
Bits & Bytes

"It's enchanting. It's pure magic. It's visually beautiful and the music is wonderful. The graphics are superb - delicate, crisp, bright. It's really, really special and gets the imagination buzzing... There's enough there to inspire a well-planned integrated curriculum approach for a term, or a year. Added to the music, art and literature are sub-themes like flight, the seasons, different places and cultures, gardens, games... It cries out for creative teachers."
