Online Children's Picture Book Reading & Creating Website Website Wins National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval

Big Universe, a unique website dedicated to children's books, has won a second award this month for being a high-quality product for children and parents. The new award is the National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval.

"In the great big world of the Internet, with its thousands of sites, portals, blogs, forums and messaging, Big Universe stands alone, and according to our testers, it really stands out," says the review on the National Parenting Center's website. "An easy to use and inviting site that brings the magic of books to your computer screen. This marvelous concept is executed brilliantly, offering easy navigation, accessible instructions and a great wealth of children's literature. You can read entire books, illustrations and all right from your computer. The assortment is plentiful and diverse so that you will not be left wanting."

The National Parenting Center was founded in July 1989 to provide comprehensive and responsible parenting advice from respected authorities in the field of child rearing and development. It dispenses this advice through a website, written transcripts, letters, brochures, and newsletters. Its Seal of Approval Program, created in 1990, oversees the peer reviewing of products and services being marketed to the parent-child audience, with the award given to products deemed high in quality and desirability based on a wide variety of determining factors.
