Bert's Christmas 3.2 Children's Coloring Prg Registration $ 20.00
FILES: bccc32.sdn

Author: Theron Wierenga

Bert's Christmas is an enjoyable coloring program for children of
all ages, but is especially useful for introducing young children
to the computer. Bert's Christmas was designed by educators to be
used by young children with a minimum of assistance by adults. As a
coloring program Bert's Christmas is superior to many other
children's coloring programs in that it allows the user to place
the various images, 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 Christmas 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.

This upgrade includes voice - either through the PC speaker or Sound
Blaster card.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
