Evaluating Websites

In the field of children's literature, the web has a wealth of information. 

A few "cautionary tales" are important to remember:

  • Consider the source and validity of the site - valid professional information or opinion or sales?
  • Obtain the date of the information for timeliness
  • Evaluate the authority of the site - institution, educator, librarian, author, publisher, parent
  • Consider the target audience for the site - children or teachers or librarians or parents
