Summary: Very good game for Kindergarten and 1st grade skills. I bought it for my 6 year old to play over the summer. She loves it and it has a parent mode so you can monitor progress and see what they need extra help on.
Great game but buy it when your child is starting 1st grade not ending it!

Summary: What a fantastic game this is and very user/kid friendly! I really wish we would have gotten this at the beginning of the school year instead of now when she has only a month left of 1st grade. It's too easy for her but is okay because it is working as a good refresher for sight words learned this year. I highly highly recommend this! In fact I'm going to tell the Kindergarten and 1st grade teachers at her school about it.
Summary: this is her first video game ever, and she really likes it! it isn't like learning to her, which is great....it's more of a fun thing for her to do. i would say this is more for kids who are having some difficulties vs actively reading, though. we're still learning the ds in general, so we haven't figured out all of the ins & outs yet. but so far, so good for my daughter. and her reading & interest in reading are both improving.
