At first glance, the sheer amount of useful links on the Refdesk home page can be overwhelming. But it's really quite well organized and useful.
Your Grandchild Will Show You How!
Welcome to Berit's Best Sites for Children
"The Internet can be a great resource--if you know how to use it effectively. There is so much information on the Internet, but finding the specific facts you need can be like looking for the needle in the proverbial haystack. You need to know where and how to look for different types of information." (from "Berit's Best" - see URL above...)
