Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Arranged by date, this useful, reliable book provides a year's worth of interesting Web sites for K-12 students "-on days, weeks, and months relating to national and international observances." Each entry contains a summary, the author or sponsor of the site, recommended age levels (primary to professional), and suggestions for curriculum tie-ins. The sites span a wide variety of subjects including National Ice Cream Month, Limerick Day, National Mental Health Month, National Inventors Day, as well as more familiar holidays and commemorative birthdays such as Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Earth Day, and Chinese New Year. Along with a comprehensive index, there are also "Quick Lists" of sites for each state, each president, and children's authors, listed both chronologically and alphabetically.-Cathy Fithian Williams, Columbus Metropolitan Library, OH Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
