This free educational program teaches children the basic alphabet, counting skills, and colors, but lacks some aspects found in similar applications. Minisebran provides eight tutorials and exercises to teach the fundamentals. You'll also find simple drawing and coloring tools, and exercises for mouse and keyboard familiarization. Upon launching, Minisebran takes over your entire screen and is accompanied by an annoying background sound; thankfully, there's an option for disabling sound.
The interface uses large buttons, which makes it ideal for children. The program features a game that instructs players to pick the object that differs from the group. If your child answers correctly, a smiley face appears over the answer; however, an incorrect answer prevents the user from moving to the next question. It would've been nice if positive statements such as "Great Job" or "That's Right" were given, as in similar educational software. Subjects regarding shapes, sounds, or more fun-filled games to entertain kids would have been nice additions to the program. Nonetheless, parents will appreciate that it's offered at no cost, and it should prove entertaining for preschoolers.
