ALA Announces 2009 Great Website for Kids

NCBLA's OurWhiteHouse Website
Named a Great Website for Kids!

The National Children's Book and Literacy Alliance is thrilled to announce that its educational website has been selected for inclusion in the American Library Association’s Great Web Sites for Kids, located at: The website is now listed with other distinguished sites in the "US History-General" category.

Great Web Sites for Kids are those considered the best websites for ages birth to 14, outstanding in both content and conception. As applied to websites for young people, “great” should be thought to include sites of especially commendable quality, sites that reflect and encourage young people’s interests in exemplary ways. The ALA's selection criteria can be found at:

The NCBLA developed to support and expand the content of its literature and art anthology Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out. With a guiding mission of creating a book that would encourage young people to read more about America’s rich history and culture, to think more about America’s future, to talk more about our nation’s leadership, and to act on their own beliefs and convictions, the NCBLA worked with a dream team of over 100 authors and illustrators to create Our White House. Our White House is available in libraries and bookstores everywhere.
