    NDS DS Games for Pre-readers?

    ProfJonathan writes

    "My daughter just got a DS from the grandparents for her 6th birthday. She's only beginning to read, but wants a bunch of games of her own rather than just playing her older brothers' games. She got Nintendogs with the DS, so that's taken care of, but other relatives are asking what she might want. Can anyone recommend some good DS games that don't require reading skill, that might be age-appropriate and interesting for a 1st grade girl?"

    Wouldn't it be creepy if the kid had a really good brain age?

    My sister started with Animal Crossing and that game pretty much forced her to learn to read so she did. Nintendogs is a good one though.

    I don't think that Kirby: Canvas Curse requires any reading and the tutorial gives visual examples on how to play the game.

    Smart girls playhouse (her favorite)
    Mario Kart DS
    Warioware Touched
    Kirby Canvas Curse
    Super Mario 64
    New super Mario Bros

    Hey, maybe the forced learning is a good thing. I'd go with Animal Crossing.

    Contra 4 doesn't require any reading... (lol)

    No, in all seriousness I'd say Cooking Mama or Super Princess Peach. Animal Crossing is great but your animal neighbours are a talkative bunch and a lot of the gameplay is gleamed from appeasing them with letters and dialogue. My niece (who is 7) loves Cooking Mama and short stabs at Electroplankton.
