Excerpt: Did you know that over 9.9 million viewers watch the Scripps National Spelling Bee? Neither did I. Or I did not know that until I started reviewing Scripps Spelling Bee for the Nintendo DS. This hand held little gem will help you improve your spelling. I know some of ya'll are like why? You have Open Office, Google, and other programs that give a little red underline when you spell something they do not have in their database.
Challenge your spelling with mini-games and a virtual bee.

Summary: Parents need to know that the vocabulary used in Scripps Spelling Bee is quite advanced (if you've ever watched the National Spelling Bee on TV, expect to see words of that level of difficulty), and feels more appropriate for children who are already good spellers and wish to challenge themselves. Kids who want to use the game to help them with basic spelling might find it too difficult.
