EDMARK ADDS BAILEY'S BOOK HOUSE TO ITS AWARD-WINNING SERIES FOR KIDS

 REDMOND, Wash., July 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Edmark Corp. (NASDAQ: EDMK), developer of the award-winning educational software programs Millie's Math House and KidDesk, today announced the shipment of Bailey's Book House. Bailey's Book House combines a unique set of proven learning techniques with the power of interactive technology to encourage two- to six-year-olds to develop early-reading skills.
 In the Book House, Bailey, a bespectacled cat, and his neighborhood friends encourage kids to explore five exciting, interactive activities. Kids learn letters, words, stories and rhyming as they design greeting cards and invitations, make stories and print booklets, create "new" Mother Goose rhymes and animate animals that begin with every letter of the alphabet.
 Bailey's house is language rich and full of written words, but non- readers have no trouble: every word on the screen is read aloud, and each word in a sentence is highlighted as it is read. If kids want to hear a word or sentence repeated, they merely move their mouse arrow to the word or sentence -- and click. Bailey's Book House is a great home for beginning readers: the animated adventures of Bailey's friends motivate and engage kids as they play, and the program's open-ended design allows children to explore and learn at their own pace.
 "We want to help kids become avid learners who approach reading with curiosity and interest," says Sally Narodick, Edmark chief executive officer. "Learning to read should be more than mastering phonics and memorizing words: it should be inspirational. Bailey's Book House is full of color, adventure, music and humor; it was designed to open the rich world of reading to very young children and motivate them to want to learn more."
