School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up -This accessible resource will be valuable in a wide variety of classes, including public speaking and journalism. Each entry includes an overview of the company behind the publication, what appears on the site, images, reasons to visit, and a rating of the content. Web site reviews on this topic are available from many online and print sources, but this one is the most concise and easiest to use. Be forewarned: because of the dynamic nature of the Internet, the "What You'll Find There" sections of each entry are likely to change. All in all, though, this is a useful book.-Ivy Miller, Kirby Library, Kingston, PA
