6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Mia, the mouse and star of Kutoka's award-winning edutainment software series is celebrating ten years of adventures and learning. To kick off the celebration, Kutoka is launching a new title, Mia Reading: The Bugaboo Bugs!. Targeted at five to nine year olds The Bugaboo Bugs! focuses on literary skills by combining an adventure game with educational activities that are in sync with the educational curriculum from kindergarten to grade three

The Bugaboo Bugs! is about some incredibly troublesome bugs! Mia lives in a charming Victorian house where her family has lived for generations. The house has recently been invaded by pests—the Bugaboos. These disrespectful, noisy and uncivilized bugs are going to attract the attention of the humans, and if they are noticed, the exterminators will be called and everyone will be put out on the street! The Bugaboos must go! And Mia needs the player’s help to find a way to get them to stay out of site.

Mia’s Reading Adventure has been designed to support a school’s curriculum from kindergarten to grade three, and includes 12 exciting literacy skills activities each with four distinct age-appropriate levels of difficulty. Topics covered include associating images to words, punctuation, phonics, rhymes, spelling, sentence structure, vocabulary, reading comprehension, word recognition, verb tense, adverbs, following instructions, and much more! There is an easy to consult progress report and The Bugaboo Bugs! educational activities are seamlessly integrated into the story. There is also a feature that allows the player to go directly to the activities. But of course, it is the adventure that makes a Mia game so special!
