Hi, Katie,

Surely this isn't a descendant of the old Atari Logo program I used in
the mid-80s?! It was a simple programming language with which you could
draw, animate, and use sound. If you would describe it more fully, I
could see if there's any relation between the two. I still have the
teaching materials I developed for teaching 5th and 6th graders (and I
think your little ones could handle it).

If anyone else out there knows if there's a connection, let us know.
