Typing Instructor for Kids: Version 4.0
Do you remember the fable from India in which the blind men took turns investigating an elephant's shape? One felt the tusk and thought an elephant was like a spear, while another felt the trunk and thought an elephant was like a snake. I was very much reminded of this fable when I asked two employees to review the number one best-selling typing software for children, Typing Instructor for Kids.

Terrific or Troublesome?
One saw the program as troublesome because of the occasional references to luck or wishing, the sporadic glimpses of skeletons or peering eyes, and the fact that children are asked to consult a talking stone if they need additional typing instruction. But the other reviewer saw it as an exciting, motivating method of teaching young children how to touch-type.

Multi-level games, graduated drills, and hundreds of activities
This latest version of the interactive fiction typing game, Typing Instructor for Kids 4.0, offers thirteen action-packed, multi-level games; graduated drills and lesson plans; hundreds of activities, exercises, and tests; and bilingual learning in English and Spanish.

Ten customizable plansľwith or without games
Using proven typing techniques, children will master the keyboard while journeying with Toby and Lafitte to five imaginative lands where they learn proper typing techniques and build keyboarding skills. Just choose a Typing Plan, set a word-per-minute goal, and as your child explores Typer Island he will learn typing along the way. The engaging lessons and exercises teach children important typing skills, including speed and accuracy. If your children find your old typing program boring, and if you are looking for the right balance of education, entertainment, and motivation in a typing program, then consider the award-winning Typing Instructor for Kids 4.0.
