Hi Everyone,

The other days while I was with my kids at home, we heard the sounds of the helicopter buzzing at the distant. We looked out from our window and saw the military helicopter, Chinook, flying pass. Due to the distance, my kids couldn't see clearly how the ‘Chinook' helicopter looks like. And so happen that I was connected to the Internet at that time, immediately I launched a web browser and visited Google image search site. I entered the search word ‘Chinook' and Google returned a list of pictures on the ‘Chinook' helicopter instantly. Finally, my kids got a close-up look on the ‘Chinook' helicopter, while I was amazed on how I make use of the Internet technology to help my kids to learn.

From then on, whenever they wanted to see something interesting, they would asked me to use the Internet …8-). We had seen the largest living mammal in the world, blue whale, the pictures of Mars, the images of Moray eel …and almost anything they want to see. So, I hope you can make full use of this tool provided by Google to satisfy the curiosity of your kids and at the same time saves yourself tons of money on encyclopedia. Enjoy your times with your kids in this summer holiday. Take care.
