REVIEW:
Wonderfully put together site. Each story is illustrated and has background information on its sources and the stories are divided into four categories: Rhymes & Nonsense, Fables & Animal Stories, Stories from Everywhere and Heroes & Adventure. Each section has about five stories and the home page has a section that lists the new additions such as the newest section, Sound Off - a collection of stories submitted by thekids.com users. Also included in the site is a discussion area and a section called "Kid Stuff" which has games, stories and polls. Additionally, the "Best of the Net" section has links to a variety of outside educational sites worth checking out. There is also a section for parents called "Parent Stuff" but it is currently under construction. The content of the site is informative and interesting but the illustrated graphics are even definitely worth the trip on their own.
