Coloring Book 5: Alphabet Train

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This very simple, featureless program helps children learn their ABCs with a virtual coloring book. The application lets kid paint funny characters, all of which start with different letters of the alphabet. For example, the letter E is represented by an egg-like creature with a wizard's hat and a magic wand. However, the letters of the alphabet are often tough to see in the overall picture, so we're not sure most kids will pick up on the program's educational aspect. The application's interface couldn't be more basic to operate, with an extensive palette of colors surrounding a large black-and-white outline of the chosen image. First, you click on a certain hue (such as red, yellow, or blue), then choose the specific shade you'd like. After that, simply clicking on an area of the drawing will paint in that particular section. Sound effects and music accompany the painting process, but we were disappointed to learn you can't turn them off. We also would like to see a free-form drawing tool for children who want to create their own pictures. The trial version only offers about five pictures. With its point-and-click coloring, you'll likely agree Coloring Book 5 Alphabet Train is only right for the youngest of tykes.
