Interest / Appeal
ADAM: The Inside Story was most appealing to the more academically inclined or advanced children among our reviewers. If your child is looking for game-type action, this is not the program for them! If, on the other hand, your child is inquisitive, and wants to know more about the body than you can remember from your high school biology class, ADAM will have some of the answers, plus lots of areas to explore.

Educational Value
The Inside Story does a very good job of illustrating the human body and its major systems. It also does a good job of explaining major body functions and common conditions. It is an excellent supplement to other texts, or as an introductory piece to a child interested in the subject.

Fun Level
"There's lots of information in ADAM, but not much to do," was a 14 year-old boy's comment. But a 15 year-old girl thought differently, "there's so much to learn about the body, its incredible!" So knowing your child is the answer to determining if this package is right; if they like to read and learn about science, this is probably going to be a winner.
