Scholastic has united efforts with this best-selling name brand in the creation of an exciting new series of Jump Start Workbooks and Early Readers. This new series is the perfect blend of two best-selling educational name brands. It combines Jump Start's cutting-edge educational software name and philosphy - that learning can be creative and fun - and our long-standing reputation for educational excellence. Jump Start Early Readers are a fresh new series of educational adventures that will help children build reading skills through lively, easy-to-read stories and non-fiction, inspired by the characters and content found in the Jump Start CD-ROMs. This way children will be encouraged to learn fundamental concepts at the same time that they are developing their reading skills through exciting JumpStart stories.
