I don't often review children's software, but three people whose opinion I respect have persuaded me to write about a Macintosh graphics program designed especially for kids.
Katherine Magid (soon to be 7 years old) says that Kid Pix "is neat because you can do all different types of things." William, my 4-year-old, just says, "I like it." My wife, Patti, who barely tolerates computers, actually encourages the kids to play with this program because it stimulates their creativity.
Kid Pix, from Broderbund, allows children to create their own paintings, graphics or other illustrations. It is a lot easier to use than painting programs designed for adults. Just as important, it offers lots of extra goodies, including sounds, pre-drawn images and plenty of special effects.
