My favorite is still Microsoft Encarta 94. IMHO, 95
is not as good, not to mention the update mechanism.
You have to buy the 95 base version to make use
of the 96 and subsequent supplements. Guess I'll
have to go to Grolier.

I haven't seen the Petting Zoo, but I've heard good
things about it. It sounds like a children's ref
source on animals.
