Cool Sites for Kids and Parents too

 Navigating through the World Wide Web can be difficult; you can't always trust that the information provided is true or correct.  When working with children, you also want to ensure their safety.  I would like to encourage you to take a look Great Websites for Kids. [It provides] a compilation of exemplary websites geared to children from birth to age 14. Suggested sites are evaluated by the Great Websites for Kids Committee using established selection criteria. The committee is made up of members of the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association.
