Absolutely Amazing!! Nov. 27 2005
By D. Reid - Published on Amazon.com
Absolutely Amazing!! Both my 8 yr. old and 10 yr. old daughters have found this software entertaining, challenging, and educational. The software has four different skill levels that is challenging to both their learning needs. You can either play the game with Mia Mouse or just do the activities.

If you're an adult, don't be discouraged by the interface - it's not for you, it's for your child. They will love it, listen to the instructions and figure out how to make Mia move and find clues.

I initially sent this back, tried three other programs and finally came back to this as the best math software available for 3rd and 4th grade girls!

Count me in with those who are unimpressed Jan. 11 2008
By P. Zack - Published on Amazon.com
Yes, this is a fun game and the kids love to play. But, if you are actually looking to use this program to reinforce math skills, you should keep looking. In my opinion, and I actually played the entire game myself, this program is a long entertaining interactive adventure with a little math sprinkled in here and there. I, personally, was a little disappointed because the reviews and endorsements were so uniformly positive. For me, this is the bottom line: I try to limit my kids computer time. And, when they DO play the computer, I prefer to allow them to play games that have some kind of redeeming educational value. This makes Mia better for me, than, perhaps, some mindless shoot-em-up game. But, I still think that this game lacks enough educational content to feel good about letting them play for hours. And, I don't think the game is particularly useful for teaching or even reinforcing math skills. So, in my opinion, buy this as a GAME that you will let your kids play as a reward. As a game, it is a pretty good one. The story is entertaining for elementary age children, and the content is appropriate with absolutely nothing objectionable even for younger kids. But, don't expect any real math learning, and don't expect this to be a particularly useful tool if you are homeschooling math. So, in my opinion, buy this if you are looking for a fun game for your kids that also as a small amount of educational reinforcement. But, DON'T buy this if you child is a struggling math student who needs tutoring, or if you are a homeschool family looking for a way to teach your children math.

What I was hoping for Nov. 9 2006
By S. Lopez - Published on Amazon.com

My daughter is 6 years old and is reading well, but she may have a learning disorder with math. The jury is still out on that. This program was exactly what I had hoped it would be. It is fun, and my daughter gets caught up in the story. She gets very excited when she gets the hang of doing the problems. For the most part, the program is appropriate for her skill level. The activities push her, but are not so difficult that she becomes too discouraged. I do have to sit with her and help her with some of the math activities, but she is willing to try to do the problems on her own because the game has inspired her. This is one of the first academic type of activity we've done where she has actually asked me to let her do it on her own and doesn't want my help most of the time. Each section of the adventure has a smiliar pattern to it, and learning to use the program is very intuitive. Whenever you need help you just click on Mia's face, and that has always been enough to figure out how to get going in the right direction. Each time the program runs it is slightly different, which is also a nice feature. We have not used the program on the more advanced levels yet, but so far we've been very pleased and would probably purchase other programs by this company.

Perfect for Short Attention spans Aug. 9 2005
By T. Sangalli - Published on Amazon.com
My daughter is 6 and she loves this game. She has played it non stop since she got it. Through great graphics and entertaining story kids go on an adventure with Mia to make a time machine to stop a fire. In the process they learn shapes, temperature,directions,sequencing, problem solving, adding, subtracting etc. There are 4 levels of difficulty so that when kids master one level they can move up to the next. My child is learning math and enjoying it! Bravo!

Excellent for kids with concentration problems! July 28 2005
By John O'Neil - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this for my son who was having difficulties with multiplication and division at school. It not's that he wasn't a smart kid, but more so that he had a hard time concentrating at school for something he wasn't interested in. My wife suggested we try software games and we found this. It is amazing. My son loves the Mia characters and spend hours on the computer, we can't even tear him off it and as a result, his math has improved. Well recommeneded for anyone whose child has learning difficulties or concentration problems.
