Reader Rabbit Math Adventures Ages 6-9 is a computer game in The Learning Company's Reader Rabbit series of children's educational games. It was released on September 28, 1998.


Reader Rabbit reluctantly joins his pal Sam the Lion who has entered his dilapidated sailboat in a race. With no rudder and a motley sail, the twosome quickly begins to trail the other racers. Sam suggests a shortcut, which leads them into unknown territory. As if that isn’t bad enough, a tremendous storm ensues, shipwrecking them on Pirate Island. As the two begin to despair, Penelope the Parrot, an island inhabitant, comes to their aid. She encourages Sam to build a new boat, using parts that have been hidden around the island. Meanwhile, the Pirats (who are rats) fear that Sam and Reader are present to steal their cheese. They have a secret plan to keep our heroes from building their boat and leaving the island, and they will stop at nothing to ensure its success.



The player has to play a number of activities multiple times throughout the island. Penelope will give instructions on how to play. There are nine types of activities. Each activity can set from difficulty levels 1 to 6 to make the math formulas easy to hard. There is also an arcade difficulty mode to set the speed of the activities. Completing an activity earns the player a boat piece and a number of points. Playing at higher difficulties earns the player more points. If the player earns enough points, the player is promoted to a higher naval rank. The ranks are:
