· Our previous go-to site for newspapers online was We know, it sounds like a disease, but that’s spelled with a “b.” This new site has hundreds more newspapers than we could find before, including 22 of them from Azerbaijan, for example. Who knew they had so many newspapers?

· You can find a lot of the classic tall tales here, like stories about Paul Bunyan and Pecos Bill. There are four categories: Tall Tales, Myths and Legends, Spooky Stories and Children’s Stories. Under this last category there are even tongue twisters, like: “I wish to wash my Irish wristwatch.” There are also bedtime stories to read to your children.
