What Melissa Purcell says about AwesomeStories:

"AwesomeStories offers a wealth of information in one user-friendly location. As a librarian, one of my primary goals is to help students effectively find and use information. The AwesomeStories website makes my job much easier by providing a location full of first-hand information in many different formats. Not only can my students find written information but they can find videos, audios, images, and more to fit their individual learning styles. As an educator, I could not ask for a better site. Lesson plans are readily available and all the resources on the site are designed to support state and national standards. It is almost unbelievable that all these educational resources are available for FREE at one location. It is truly an "awesome" resource!"
