Bert's African Animals

Bert's African Animals is an enjoyable coloring program for children of all ages, but is especially useful for introducing young children to the computer. Bert's African Animals was designed by educators to be used by young children with a minimum of assistance by adults. As a coloring program Bert's African Animals is superior to many other children's coloring programs in that it allows the user to place the various animals, all in four different sizes, on a variety of backgrounds. This allows children to easily create their own picture before coloring. The opportunity to create their own picture will allow children to take pride in their unique creation.
When first started Bert's African Animals displays a title screen and then the drawing surface with eight buttons on the left. Children can operate the program with the mouse alone. A window is provided which allows children to write a short story about their picture using the keyboard. The fact that they created the picture will help provide the motivation to write about it. One of the best ways for children to learn to read is to write, even if their initial attempts include phonetic spelling which is not always correct. If your child is not ready to attempt writing his/her story, then another good strategy is for you to type in your child's story as he/she dictates it to you. Then have your child read back the story he/she created. This is another very effective beginning reading strategy. They will love creating a setting, writing or dictating their own story and printing out a copy.
