Learning with Gcompris

"As you can see from Figure 1, Gcompris has a pretty simple user interface. Along the bottom of the screen, we have buttons that let us quit, see the credits, configure the program, and get help. Along the left side, we have icons for each game (I mean exercise) category. As you mouse over each icon, a brief written explanation of category is presented in the blue section of the screen. This is a nice compromise for kids who can't read and parents who would rather see text. The program's spoken prompts and classical music playing in the background make Gcompris a very professional program. Besides, everyone knows that classical music is good for kids."
