Travel the World with Timmy Deluxe
by Michele Sands
Presents a very favorable review of Travel the World with Timmy
Deluxe ($160) from Edmark Corp. of Redmond, WA (800). Describes it
as a language and culture program for early childhood development,
learning, and play. Requires a minimum of a 486/66MHz Pentium for
Windows, or a Macintosh System 7.0.1, 68040 or PowerPC; both systems
require at least 8MB RAM, a 2X CD-ROM drive, and a 256-color
monitor. Offers rich resources for grades preK-2 (with some
applications for older children) about the history, environment, and
culture of five countries - Argentina, France, Japan, Kenya, and
Russia. Relates that the program's combination of audio, visual, and
kinetic approaches to language learning and cultural appreciation
would be a valuable addition to any early learning social studies
classroom - or home. Rated five on a scale of one to five.
Includes one scorecard and one screen display.
