November 4, 2008.  ALSC announces exceptional Web sites for children … The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association, has added Web sites this fall to Great Web Sites for Kids … “Not all Web sites for kids are created equal,” said Karen Lemmons, co-chair of the committee and a library media specialist at Howe Elementary School in Detroit. “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 must stand up to an evaluation and voting process by the committee before being deemed ‘great’ and added to the GWS page.” ALSC’s GWS Committee voted to add … The Children’s Book Review.

“New” blog alert. I never seem to catch these things when they first come out. In any  case, there’s a new blogger in town at a site called The Children’s Book Review. I’m fond of the Aussie creator’s reviewing style. This one’s got style.
