This game works with: SheepShaver,

Psst. This is NOT Dreamship Adventure. This is the far superior (am I seriously talking about edutainment abandonware right now...) game that really pushed the limits of how far you could push an educational game in the direction of being a video game.

From Amazon...

Castles capture kids' imaginations. This software learning fortress is designed to do that and more. Combining the fun of arcade-style play with a compelling adventure and basic academic skills, the latest title in the Reader Rabbit grade-based series complements second-grade curriculum by exercising grade-appropriate skills in reading and reading comprehension, math, grammar and writing skills, science and thinking. Players embark on a quest with Sam the Lion to save Reader Rabbit by unraveling the mysteries of Dragon's Castle. But obstacles abound in the 10 main "passages" and 60 challenging activities where kids earn points to advance. In Geometry Jump, for instance, they have to think fast to match shapes and figure spatial problems. The Mirror Meaning area teaches and tests reading comprehension strategies. The Spelling Search works spelling patterns. To encourage creativity and self-expression, the Castle Journal is filled with brief stories that players respond to in their own words. A record-and-playback feature lets them record their ideas out loud before writing them down. Everything gets progressively more difficult to make short attention spans a moot point!

Wow, as the person who uploaded this to begin with, I'm so humbled to get to help someone play the game with their kids. : ) This is my personal favorite of the Reader Rabbits, and I play it with my little brother all the time. Good taste, and thank you so much for the scan of the CD, mine has a completely different picture on it!

This is a great CD! I just uploaded the CD image I scanned from the original I have. Unfortunately my kids wore this disk out (scratched on the back really bad) to where it's not playable anymore. They use to play this disk EVERY DAY! I now have a newborn baby girl and plan to share the wonder of Reader Rabbit when she grows up! Once again, The Macintosh Garden has come through providing a replacement solution for the scratched disk that I purchased all those many years ago!. I downloaded the above ISO file and it works PERFECTLY! May abandonware live FOREVER!
