Awards & Reviews:

"Developed specifically for children in years one through four, World Book Kids is a fun way to introduce computer research skills to primary students using a strong, reliable source. When teachers and librarians stress the importance of gathering research through authoritative sources at an early age, our students will become wise and more efficient researchers producing higher quality products. Highly recommended for students in first through four."
Catholic Library World, September 2011 

“This unique resource will be a much-used reference source in most school libraries. Younger users will like the simpler language and abundance of pictures, while teachers will find the helpful teacher resources useful for their curriculum needs. This resource is highly recommended.”
American Reference Book Annual 2011

"...a valuable resource for younger students, as well as reluctant readers and English Language Learners" -- Maren Ostergard -- Booklist February 2007
