The American Library Association has a web site organizing outstanding web sites for kids. There's also a section for parents, teachers and caregivers. I appreciate sites like this because someone else has already evaluated their authenticity and appropriateness for a given age group. They've given it a catchy title "Great Web Sites For Kids" so you know exactly what it contains. Located at www.ala.org/greatsites; it features links to sites of interest to children 14 years and younger. If your child is looking for help with a research paper or general information, this site might just have what they are need. There are also lots of fun and educational games and activities; maybe more interesting than reading this blog!
