Great Websites for Kids
The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) recently relaunched its Great Websites for Kids page with a fresh, colorful and kid-friendly new look. Enhanced interactive social media components allow visitors to rate, share and recommend favorite websites through e-mail and sites like Facebook.
Great Websites for Kids is a compilation of exemplary websites geared toward children from birth to age 14. Each week, a different site is highlighted on the homepage with a brief description and the number of times people have clicked on it. Visitors can explore Sites of the Week, Sites of the Month, Most Popular and Top-Rated sites and the sites are even divided into different categories for easier browsing:
- The Arts
- History and Biography
- Literature and Languages
- Mathematics and Computers
- Reference Desk
- Social Sciences
Suggested sites are analyzed using established selection criteria. New sites are evaluated and accepted three times a year and the Great Websites for Kids Committee reviews the site selection to ensure all sites are still relevant, appropriate and accessible. This is a great resource for parents, caregivers, and teachers, especially on a rainy day!
If you have a favorite kids’ website you’d like to share, you can suggest it here!
