Bert's Whales and Dolphins 3.2 Children's Coloring Registration $ 20.00
SDN_GAME SEP93 EDUCATIONAL CHILDREN KIDS COLORING WHALES DOLPHINS SEA MAMMALS
FILES: bwdcc32.sdn

Author: Theron Wierenga

Bert's Whales and Dolphins is an enjoyable coloring program for
children of all ages, but is especially useful for introducing
young children to the computer. Bert's Whales and Dolphins was
designed by educators to be used by young children with a minimum
of assistance by adults. As a coloring program Bert's Whales and
Dolphins is superior to many other children's coloring programs in
that it allows the user to place the various sea mammals, 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 Whales and Dolphins 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: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
