Technical questions

1. The PUZZLES function in the Games section is not appearing on my desktop/laptop?

Ans: World Book have built the new Kids on the latest technology. This includes the puzzles function, which has been built using the latest HTML5 technology. Unfortunately Internet Explorer does not explore the plug-in required to run this technology. If you are using Internet Explorer the puzzles will not appear.

2. Can I still use all other areas of Kids on Internet Explorer?

Ans: Yes, all other areas of Kids function perfectly on Internet Explorer.
