I found it easy to use, straightforward, nonthreatening. I like the entire series.

Here’s what Amazon has to say:

A year’s-worth of age-appropriate computer lessons–32 multimedia projects–in KidPix, Publisher, Google Earth, keyboarding, computer parts, vocabulary, and solving common computer problems. The unique combination of projects and skills, introduced according to a proven timetable, morph a student from computer novice to enthusiast. No other technology learning system has been tested in more circumstances, with more teacher experience levels, from home schooling to running a computer lab. You’ll find step-by-step lesson plans enhanced with the most popular internet edutainment sites, examples of completed work, vocabulary builders and collaborations with classroom curriculum that meet and exceed ISTE, NCLB and most state elementary school technology standards–all done by providing a sense of wonder along the way and achievement at the end. This is part of the six-volume technology training series for kindergarten through fifth grade. During these years, students learn tens of hundreds of computer skills while exploring math, science, literature, grammar, spelling, problem-solving, critical thinking.
