ALSC: Exceptional Web Sites for Children

The Association for Library Service to Children ALSC announced the most exceptional websites for children.

"To make the cut and appear on the Great Web sites for Kids, a site must demonstrate commendable quality and reflect and encourage young people's interests in exemplary ways. Sites are put through a rigorous evaluation and voting process by the committee before being deemed "great" and added to the GWS page."
