A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this website.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this ecological education site is a safe place for kids to learn about the planet, the environment, recycling and the world around them. Though there are quite a few ads on its Web pages and some significant self-promotion of products, the bulk of the site is full of informative facts and information. Its kid-centric illustrations are geared to elementary-aged children who might be interested in learning more about the earth and how to save it -- or just how to treat it well.
Is it any good?
Kids, parents, and educators will be drawn to the illustrated hosts of PlanetPals where a set of cute “planet pals” (each with their own backstory, video, and poem!) welcome visitors. With names like Earthman, Starbright, and Breezy, you may expect a site geared to toddlers with short attention spans, but there’s a tremendous amount of informative environmental and ecological information to be discovered in this simple, safe, award-winning Web site.
