Find out about DKfindout! (and a giveaway!)

I love helping kids at the library find a book to explore a topic that's grabbed their interest or information to finish up that project for school.

I always present a variety of books for them to choose from, but invariably they end up going home with a book from DK - Dorling Kindersley. (And if I'm asked - yes, they are my choice as well) Great up to date information well presented with lots of pictures.

Well, DK has taken things a (fantastic!) step further - they've got a great new online site called DKfindout. It's an exciting new online learning resource for kids, parents, teachers and educators of all kinds.

"Nearly two years in the making, DKfindout is a global education website that brings together DK's unrivaled collection of amazing images and expertly researched text to create a safe - and useful - online learning environment!

Catering to visual learners of all ages, this amazing free website allows people to create their own journey of discovery and learn remarkable facts along the way. It's accessible on all devices, iPad, phone, laptop and computer - and best of - it's free!"

DK would love to hear what you think about DKfindout. Check it out and enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below to win a DKfindout tote bag. You can also let DK know what you think by tweeting #dkfindout on Twitter or on the DKCanada Facebook page. Ends Feb 28/15 Canadian peeps only for this one.

I didn't know dogs had nose I'm a raw feeder of long coat german shepherds/ breeder/trainer.... I stopped by (originally), hoping to ask you to review my paranormal romance...Now - after exploring - I've found a place to explore with my grandson... As a parent - I was highly focused on my children's education - one graduated at 16, the other started college courses (analytical calc) at Washington College - in 10th grade. As a result - my daugter is focused on effective communication/education with her son - this DK is a great site!! thank you... oh, and if you do review other books, could you drop me a line at if not - it's cool. would still love to connect over facebook about kids education. thank you
