Editors' Review

+
This program may look promising due to its colorful graphics, but users will quickly realize there are major design flaws, including the inability to exit the program and no help file. The interface includes static images that resemble flash cards and buttons with no explanation as to what they do. Rows of colored flowers let users change colors, but this feature, along with the instrument selection option, does not improve the learning process. Little Genius does include three skill levels based on age ranges but there is little difference between them. The program uses a dot-to-dot tracing method for letter recognition and writing skills, but this feature is confusing and the computer-generated voice is unrealistic. This program takes over your screen and requires the user to hit CTRL ALT DELETE to exit. Though it's free, parents will find Little Genius offers little value.
