Poems for Children by Jack Prelutsky. The New Kid on the Block is the first volume of poetry in the award-winning Living Books series. The New Kid on the Block is based on the best-selling book of the same title and includes 18 of Jack Prelutsky's witty, tongue-in-cheek poems from that volume.

The New Kid on the Block lets students choose between having the poems read aloud to them (many are read by Jack Prelutsky himself), or exploring the poetry on their own, at their own pace. The "Let Me Play" mode lets students click on various words or phrases, activating a series of animations that define (often in a hilarious way) the meaning of the word or phrase selected.

There is an audio partition. It contains the credits theme and another song. Yeah, I used Toast Titanium 11. I also made a normal Toast file just incase. I'll upload the .toast image now and re-create the bin/cue with a Windows program I've used before.

No problem Smile I'm having Berenstain Bears Get in A Fight, Stellaluna, Harry And The Haunted House & Arthur's Reading Race being shipped to me this coming week. Bought these 4 (plus New Kid On The Block) on ebay Tongue

I'll go & upload the .toast image now & redo the bin/cue in a bit.

Thank you very much for the upload, eisnerguy1. However, can you please re-upload this as a standard Toast or iso image? There are a couple of reasons for this. Firstly, you only need to use a bin-cue image if the CD contains an audio partition as iso images cannot capture both audio and game partitions. Secondly, a bin-cue is inconvenient for many people as it cannot be mounted in an emulator and so in this case will need to be converted to an iso image first, or burnt to a physical CD.

I also found that your bin-cue is not recognised by Toast 7 and I had to convert it to an iso image on a Windows computer. Did you make the bin-cue with a recent version of Toast? These seem to be incompatible with Toast 7 (at least the ones I have seen are). For future reference, if you do need to make a bin-cue because you have a CD with both game and audio partitions, please make the bin-cue on a Windows computer, rather than use Toast. Various software will do the conversion, and different people have their favourites. I use UltraIso.

Having said all that, I thank you again for the upload and hope to see more. Smile

This is the first time I've uploaded a game. I made a bin/cue of the disc with Toast Titanium. Please let me know if I've missed something. Thanks!
