All ages


Diner Dash: Flo on the Go, Brighter Minds Media, 2007; $19.99; all ages; Requires Windows 98, 2000, XP or Vista, or Macintosh OS X 10.3.9 or newer. Flo, our heroic waitress, goes on vacation in this recent addition to the new classic Diner Dash series. Although it may seem that players are merely taking orders, serving drinks, delivering food and collecting tips (the basic tasks of game play), they’re actually learning the art of managing a complex, dynamic system of juggling multiple tasks and anticipating “what’s next.” Diner Dash is a great way to help kids strengthen coordination and expand their ability to manage multiple goals. This one doesn’t disappoint!
