Jeugdbieb has links to websites, movies and apps for children. Interesting and filled with facts or just for fun! Also a good site if your child has to do a presentation or book report. Everything on this site has been checked by librarians.
*tip, give your child, klas 2 and up, a subject. Let them look information up, write a report or do a presentation about the subject. It can be anything, from science to history. Children can work together with friends by using Skype, FaceTime or whatsapp. This makes learning more fun and interactive.
