Great new website

Take a look at this great new website. Infoblitz is a gateway to lots of websites.

Some of the topics include,
  • New Zealand,
  • technology,
  • art and craft,
  • music and dance,
  • animals,
  • authors.
It is certainly a site I will be bookmarking and visiting heaps.
It is bright and fresh and very easy to use. Just click on the links and have fun.
Great for research and hobbies.
The site was created by Wendy Ballard, librarian at Greenpark Primary School in Tauranga and I think she has done a wonderful job.

Parents and kids reading

Thanks to National Library for this wonderful site parents and kids reading with heaps of links to other sites on reading.

The idea is to keep reading to your children no matter what age they are. Take turns reading to each other. Have fun with reading. 
Don’t forget that on the parent’s page of this blog is a list of books on reading that you can borrow. 
I am always available to help with the selection of books for your child. Whichever library you visit do make use of the librarians as they are there to help and encourage your child to read. All it takes is the right book for the right child.
