JUST FOR FUN

Learn How to Make Pictures? On Your Computer

Silly Billy Books presents a series of lessons to teach you how to draw
pictures using your computer. Part One shows you the basic tools commonly
used in computer drawing programs and includes step-by-step instructions
for drawing people. My rating: 4/5.

STORIES

Candlelight Stories Home Page
http://users.aol.com/cimal/candlelight/candle.htm
Read the children's picture book"Sally Saves Christmas." This story is
easy-to-read and illustrations are colorful and fun. Other Sally stories
will be available in the future, as well as stories by other writers and
artists. My rating: 5/5.

How a Book is Made

Visit The Big Busy House kids' page at HarperCollins book publishers. Here,
you can follow Aliki, and her book-loving cats, on a behind-the-scenes look
at how a book is made. Wonderful drawings and large text help make this an
interesting tour. My rating: 5/5.

Mike Is Hungry

Large text and simple, colorful pictures make this very short story good
for young children. My rating: 4/5.
