JumpStart Second Grade Reading has a fun adventure theme with an Indiana Jones-like frog named CJ and his sidekick , a firefly named Edison. The two are on a quest to find the lost city of Ursulab. They have been trapped in an archelogical dig site by the evil Dr. Listick who has stolen part of the tablet that will lead them to the lost city.
CJ and Edison must collect jewels from various ancient ruins around the world to free the elders who will help reveal the lost city of Ursulab. In order to collect the jewels CJ and Edison need help to complete various puzzles. These activities require some basic reading skills and some fine motor ability to navigate characters in order to avoid minor setbacks.
Each activity in JumpStart Second Grade Reading has three difficulty levels, and the levels get progressively more difficult as the child plays. The difficulty level can also be set higher as needed.
