I just received my winnings from a fabulous giveaway by Jump Start and I am stoked! My kindergartner and preschooler will now get to try their hands at Pet Rescue, the latest installment in the video learning game world.
Mind you, I am not a supporter of video games in general played for hours on end (not judging anyone who is, I just think there are many other activities that I can engage my kids in that stretch their imaginations so much more). However, I must say that I have been impressed with our limited selection of Leapster 2 learning games and the Wii Sports that we got for the boys to provide indoor "exercise"/fun on inclement days. And now I am excited to add Pet Rescue to their collection.
This adventure contains 5 discovery worlds where kids navigate through stories in search of lost pets. Each discovery world contains a guided story that leads them on a learning adventure through more than 70 learning lessons and activities that teach over 75 essential skills. As kids progress through the adventures, they improve their pre-reading skills, memory, creativity, motor skills, listening and much more. Thank you Jump Start for offering such a fabulous giveaway!
