Kudos for CM

Net Guide Live CM magazine has been designated one of NetGuide Magazine's Best of the Web. Here's what they had to say about us.

"Canadian parents interested in educational and entertaining materials for their kids will find a treasure chest at CM. Published by the Manitoba Library Association, CM lets parents search for children's book authors or access CM's vast stable of family-friendly book reviews or reviews of multimedia projects. If you like the sound of CM-reviewed books, you can order them online. CM is a wonderful discovery, as pleasant as a stroll through a well-stocked library and as rewarding as hugs from your kids."
