New Website of the Month! - The World of Victor

Hey there, it's cold outside! Come inside and visit The World of Victor!

Toddlers and preschoolers will love exploring this website with their caregivers. From the meadows to the jungle, to the plains, and under the sea, there's a whole world of nature and animals to discover.

This website has pictures, puzzles, games, songs, and printable coloring pages to enjoy, and instructions to help adults. Before you know it, little ones will be using simple computer skills such as clicking and moving a computer mouse.

Colorful pages, animal sounds, musical effects, and Victor's giggles make this site a delight!
