    I just would like to say that I love this idea! I am the mother of four, one second grader, and one in Kindergarten (this year), and two that will be in school in the next 5 years. I think this will be a huge benefit to many families & children.

    My grand daughter will be going to Pre-school this fall. I take care of her 3 days a week as her mother works. I would like to know more about this so that I can keep her busy and also learn things. She loves Dora and I will be a special friend if I get this for her. I am quite elderly so am always looking for things to keep her entertained.
    Thank you
