Exceptional Websites for Children
The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association, has added more recommended websites to Great Web Sites for Kids, an online resource containing hundreds of links to commendable websites for children.
Great Web Sites for Kids (GWS) features links to websites of interest to children 14 years of age and younger, organized into diverse subject headings from astronomy and space to zoos and aquariums, from games and entertainment to geography and maps. There is also a special section with sites of interest to parents, caregivers, and teachers.
Members of the ALSC Great Web Sites for Kids Committee review potential sites for inclusion and vote on the sites to be included. They also regularly check the entire site to ensure currency and re-evaluate sites when necessary.
