Parents and Children Together Online
Imagine parents and children working together to discover and nurture the importance of reading in their lives. The Family Literacy Center at the ERIC Clearinghouse for Reading, English and Communication, is an online magazine designed to help make this happen. Visit this site with your children (or parents.) View the current issue, submit stories together, and enjoy what other families have created. You can also read past issues and, if necessary, review their writer's guidelines for support.
This colorful, well-crafted service aims to provide current, easy-to-access information about all areas of family life, including departments for family activities, computing, education, entertainment, food, health, and travel. The informative and engaging articles offered here are a cut above standard web fare. Also worth noting is the regional map of other family-related Internet resources in the USA. Check this site out!
