Wednesday, April 6, 2011 Review and Giveaway!!

When I was offered the opportunity to feature on my blog, I was a little hesitant. Mostly because I don't care for most online programs for children. It seems there are often popups or ads that just aren't appropriate for children, or the site is just boring, and doesn't capture a child's interest. But, after trying out a few times, I am convinced this is not just your average children's educational website! With 6 levels, over 350 lessons, and 2,000individual learning activities, ABCmouse is packed with fun learning experiences for your child, in Science, Reading, Math, Music, Art and colors.  Right from the start it is fun and entertaining, as you/your child get to create your own avatar. The lessons are fun, and not so long as to bore the child, or lose their attention. After a lesson is completed, the child earns a ticket, and is advanced to the next part. The kids get to go shopping with the tickets they earn, and can "purchase" accessories for their room, avatar, aquarium, or emoticons! I was very impressed with the site, and will recommend it to anyone looking for a fun educational site for their children!

"The Step-by-Step Learning Path presents the full curriculum in a carefully designed program of more than 350 lessons in six levels. As your child completes each lesson, he or she is guided to the next one and is motivated to continue learning by’s Tickets and Rewards System. The lessons of the Step-by-Step Learning Path consist of books, puzzles, games, songs, art activities, and/or printables that relate to a specific topic. Each lesson offers children several different ways to learn, in accordance with the recommendations of early childhood experts." is giving a gift code good for 1 year of membership to one of my readers!!
