Libro Island- ALSC site

Wow! I have used the ALA site in the past and not once did I ever realize they had an entirely seperate portion dedicated to the Children's Library! I really like this site!
My absolute favorite section of the site is the portion that focuses on a list of great websites for kids! I don't know how many times I have teachers as well as parents ask me for good sites for their kids. I LOVE that this is a one-stop place to find valuable sites! I can't wait to share this with my teachers.

I also really like that this site dedicates sections to educators and parents. The educator portion would be valuable for teachers to use when looking for good book lists and also suggested websites.

The parent section has a lot of valuable information! They can find everything from information on the Caldecott and Newberry awards to resources in helping their child to read and even information on navigating the net with their child. I plan on posting a link to this portion of the site on my own website!
