recommended by teachers, librarians, and library and educational consortia.

Are your students trying to do
online research and discovering that the resources are just too difficult for
their understanding? Our
website/search engine https://www.kidtopia.info
is designed to be age- and subject- appropriate for these students. Websites are selected only if
recommended by teachers and librarians for these levels.
If you need additional resources, please let us know. Many of our resources were developed
based on requests from teachers and librarians.
