Reviewer: Mrs. Warren from Sacramento, California  
Bright & Brainy is an absolutely outstanding educational game for 3rd graders of all shapes and sizes. A very easy to use setup where kids can find ways to complete every task on it. I would consider this learning game to be challenging but not too hard so that the students won't be able to succeed. In my opinion, this is a great educational tool that teachers everywhere would be smart to utilize. As a 3rd Grade teacher at Phoebe Hearst Elementary, I would recommend this to anyone who needs to help their 3rd grader improve their reading or math skills.
