Makes writing fun! Dec 27 2005

I got this to encourage my dyslexic daughter to do more writing. She enjoys playing with it. She doesn't think of it as an "educational toy," which is good, yet I think she is getting in a lot of good writing practice. It works well (we have it on a Mac) and it has a lot of cool features, like a password-protected journal and a feature that will read back what you have written. You can even add sound effects. I'm glad we got it.

Ultimate Writing & Creativity Center Nov. 15 2009

This software was a big disappointment, b/c most of the writing ideas are reports of a factual nature. I had thought that the software would take my child through the steps of writing, but it didn't. Furthermore, the motivational comments are not motivational to my student, but rather annoying. I spent the money for nothing. We are not using the software.

It might be good, but needs a basic instruction booklet Jan. 1 2011

My six year old daughter got The Learning Company's Storybook Weaver Deluxe for Christmas last year. She has had a great time using it to write stories by herself, with friends, and with family members. This year, we got the Ultimate Writing and Creativity Center program for her because we thought it was the next step up from Storybook Weaver. Maybe it is better or worse or just different, but we can't figure it out and my daughter is frustrated. She does not like it at all. To say that the program is not user friendly is an understatement. The introduction and the help menu are basically useless. It might be a great program and it might be worth twice the list price if it came with a simple two or three-page instruction booklet with the CD, but it does not. I don't know everything that the program can do but, frankly, it has not shown enough potential to make me want to invest a lot of time trying to figure it out.

I am very disappointed with the limited writing program choices available for children. I think that software manufacturers are missing out on a very lucrative market.

This is a good program, my daughter got board with it more quickly then I would have thought but we still pull it out when she has something to write for school. Nice printable boarders and pictures for the text boxes.

Writing in ESOL Classrooms Jan. 30 2010

Appropriate for younger children or children at lower level of cognitive development. Bought it for middle school language learners. In general, they enjoy it. Easy to navigate.
