A+ REVIEW:
A wonderful tool for students looking for information on a variety of subjects. Billed as "A World Wide Web Digital Library for School kids " there are currently 20 main topics. Some of the smaller topics have at least three links while the larger topics have at least ten each. Most of the cited links are also broad in scope and make for excellent starting points when doing research. This site would be a great place to start if a student didn't know what topic to choose for a research paper or school project. The site would also be useful to educators looking for ideas of where to let their students surf on the Internet, lesson plans or for subject supplements. Anyone new to the Internet would also do well starting here, as the links are very easy to follow. Generally, a broad range of information that can be narrowed down by following the links, similar to the idea of the internet itself.
