Easy Databases for Elementary Kids

Now that school’s started, parents and other caregivers can look forward helping with all those homework questions. Sure, the library has many books that may help, but what if you need something tonight and the library’s closed? Try some of our easy databases for kids that are specifically designed for common homework questions. CultureGrams has cultural, political, geographical, and wildlife information for countries, states, and Canadian provinces, and comes with a special Kids Edition. SIRS Discoverer has full text articles from newspapers, magazines, and reference books arranged by common homework topics such as pro/con issues, science fair topics, and animal facts. Of course, you can help them find books to read for fun by checking out Novelist K-8 Plus – just put in a book you like to get suggestions for similar authors and titles.
