Another great site for librarians looking for educational games to link from their homepage.  The site is organized by broad category and contains links within to games, puzzles, and content videos and songs. 

Most games have very obvious content associations; however, I was disappointed that several of the animal videos seemed to be unwise choices.  Several of the big cats videos, for example, did not educate about the species, but were actually about people who kept the big cats as pets – not something I would want to foster in children.  The site does, unfortunately, contain targeted ads as well.  Overall, however, a lot of content is present here to keep young kids entertained and hopefully give them the opportunity to learn something at the same time.
