Walking on the Moon
Humankind's first landing on the moon is one of the great historical events of recent times. The TV series "From the Earth to the Moon" tells the story of the astronauts who made the voyages and the men and women who made it possible for them to go. The new Web site continues where the miniseries left off, with all of the lunar landings, splashdowns and flight simulators that space nuts love. Liftoff to www.hbo.com/ apollo and you will even get the lowdown on the Soviet Moon Story. To add some fun to your factual intake, be sure to play the space games for kids, too.

Take a V.I.P. Tour At the White House for Kids, V.I.P. stands for Very Important Pet. Socks the Cat is it, and he's your personal guide for a great tour of the most important home in the country. Getting to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is as easy as clicking on www.whitehouse.gov/about/white-house-101. Have you heard about Buddy, the new dog at the White House? There were a lot of other presidential pets making messes on the White House lawn before Buddy came along! And there were lots of kids before Chelsea Clinton to play with those official animals. Check out the history of White House pets (from ponies to puppies) and the "First Children" who played in the halls of this amazing mansion. Oh, and while you're at the White House, don't forget to send an e-mail to the president!

Ask Amy
Dear Amy: Why don't kids know smoking is bad for them?--Michael, Kansas City, MO
Dear Michael: Kids hear it all the time, but I guess just knowing it doesn't keep them from smoking. There is a cool Web site at www.biocomics.com that uses a comic book hero called Captain Bio to teach kids about the bad effects of smoking. It has excerpts from the comic book stories and lots of interactive games that are fun to play. It helps kids understand the social and physical issues about using tobacco without preaching to them. They can face off against the evil tobacco villain, Sinister Smoke, who tries to get kids "hooked" on smoking. Instead, they can get hooked on the facts. (This site is no longer available.)

Dear Amy: Are there any Web sites just for girls?--Melissa, Pocatello, ID
Dear Melissa: A good place to start is a World Wide Web site called Girls Talking at http:// www.west.net/ ~jharlan. It has some nice areas about having fun, making changes and finding solutions. Another of my favorite sites is Girl's World, "the space where girls rule the place" at www.agirlsworld.com. This home page is hopping! You can make some new friends or give your opinion about what to do if your best friend blabbed all your secrets. (The first site is no longer available.)
