Name: NATASHA 10th November 2008
i think that this webste is good for all ages. At first my teacher forced me to go on it for some homework but when i experienced going on it i told my teacher ''can you give me more homework on this website''. i think that everyone should hear about this webste. therefore i am going to find a way to let the whole wolrd know.

there is another story similiar to this one and it is called ''humty dumpty''. even though this website is educational i still think it needs more stuff for younger ages between 4-7.....
