Littlefingers Early Learning CD is actually four computer game CDs in one package. It includes Picture Math, Fun with Charlie, Picture Puzzles, and Little Red Wagon Town. Picture Math features six different math games related to addition, subtraction, graphing, patterns, fractions, and shapes. In Fun with Charlie children can do six different activities that focus on abstract reasoning skills. Picture Puzzles has six puzzle activities, including Picture Doku, a preschool version of the popular Sudoku game. Little Red Wagon Town gives children the opportunity to practice matching skills, following directions, and color and shape skills.

I turned my 5-year-old loose with this game, and she had so much fun. The level of difficulty was perfect for her -- challenging enough to be interesting but easy enough that she could do the games herself without frustration. Many of the games she could figure out on her own. A few required minimal instructions from me the first time, and then she was able to play on her own. She especially loved Picture Doku, as Sudoku is a favorite game with the older people in our house. It made her feel quite grown up to be able to play her own version. I was very pleased with the educational value of Littlefingers Early Learning CD. As many homeschooling parents will understand, I am always looking for something that will both educate and entertain my younger children during the time I need to be working one-on-one with the older children.  Littlefingers Early Learning CD has become one of the tools that fill this need in our home. This game is perfect for children in the preschool through early elementary age range.
