Google can bring you back 100,000 answers. A librarian can bring you back the right one. Author Neil Gaiman.
Your local librarian is a treasure that you as parents must discover for the sake of your children. He/she can research anything you or your children want to know. If your children are working on a project or assignment that requires them to find out more, take a trip to the library. If you do not know to use the computer, your librarian will be your guide. If you do not know how to use the card catalog, or sources for research, your librarian will help. She will even help you find pictures and diagrams to enhance your presentation.
The only thing your librarian can not do is think and figure out how to use the information you find. Parents can help you organize material if given enough time.
Children, make sure your parents know your assignment as soon as it is given. Your parents cannot help if you do not keep them in the loop...and give yourself enough time. The research sometimes is the easiest to do, but the thinking and organizing takes time.
