Interactive Books -- Early Reading Software

The Big Picture

Interactive Books are one of the most popular software categories, for users and publishers alike. In general, these programs are good introductions to reading for young children, especially for those not always interested in sitting down to hear a book read in a parent's lap. Many parents also confess to using these programs as a substitute for television or videos, with the belief that they provide at least some educational value. The individual reviews indicate which of these programs our parents and educators felt were valuable for that purpose.

Should you buy these programs for your children? The answer depends on their interests, and how you want to see your home computer used.
