Reader Rabbit: I Can Read with Phonics! — If you're not familiar with Reader Rabbit, you should be. It is arguably the best brand of reading products, and this particular CD-ROM is especially good. It is actually two programs in one: "Road to Imagination" and "Word Station." The first is a series of 15 levels with two stories each. Each story is interactive reading with many short amusing animations and a mini game designed to promote word and sound recognition. The "Word Station" game is a collection of four word games: Word Mine, Vowel Pond, Match Patch, and Alphabet Dance. Each of these four games has four levels of interactive fun learning.

The sounds and animations make this a CD-ROM that kids will want to play again and again.
