"Teachers and parents are advocates of really good online sources for information, and the Infoplease Kids' Almanac is just that, " said Steve Vander Ark, Library Media Specialist/ Technical Coordinator for a school system in Michigan. "It's one of the few resource sites I have selected to link to my school web site. It's well-designed, very thorough and extremely useful for my students from elementary grades all the way through high school. It's wonderful to be able to point them to a site that I know will meet their needs."
