Easy Databases for Elementary Kids

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.
