Description from the packaging.

Challenge your child's mind and his or her imagination. Take a voyage into exciting worlds of discovery. Familiar, dry, or difficult subjects will never be the same again once you have been on a Sierra Discovery Series adventure.

Now any child who can use a mouse can learn to read.

Alphabet Blocks is a revolutionary educational program that teaches your child all the letters and sounds of he alphabet using proven learning methods and the latest computer technology.

In this fun, engaging introduction to alphabet sounds and names, two computer friends- a cheerful chimp and jolly jack-in-the-box- gently coach your child through the basic rules of the "game" of reading. Kids have a great time as these two infinitely patient tutors offer practice questions and encouragement in the only program on the subject to use accurate, synchronous facial expressions and digitized speech.

Alphabet Blocks helps make the transition to reading easy and can give your child a significant head start in reading proficiency. It's real education that's real fun.
