Google and Yahoo aren’t always the best search engines to use. Thanks to Joyce Valenza and her blog The NeverEnding Search on the School Library Journal Website for the posters on three topics: Kids’ Search Tools, Kids’ Reference, Kids’ Video Search. These posters will give you some places to start looking. Take a look and discover something new.
