Summary
  • Broderbund Software Inc's $39.95 The New Kid on the Block is the company's first foray into children's poetry, but the heavy-handed animation leaves little to the imagination and does not let users discover the poems at their own pace. New Kid is the latest in Broderbund's Living Books series, which previously had been limited to popular children's stories. The software presents the humorous poems of Jack Prelutsky and seeks to preserve the feel of the material's original print version. The illustrations are adaptations of James Stevenson's original black-and-white sketches, but the creators have added color and solidified the sketches into line drawings. The animated sequences illustrate every action described in verse and add sound effects but do not give children a sense of the rhythm of the poems or of the special qualities of poetry in general.
