Pros: Great Learning opportunity and family fun
Cons: It was hard to figure out how to save the game.
Comments: The Learning Company and partners have temaed up to create a great game. There are wonderful opportunities for children to learn geography, sharing, working together/getting along and problem solving. This would be a fun game for parents to play together with the kids. Hint: you need to enter a name to save under that is longer than a few initials and it should be formated like a regual first and surname. The game has some fun dialogue the graphics too.
