Thanks to you, this site is TWENTY years old!
Some of our first young visitors could be parents by now. We wonder when someone who enjoyed the site as a child will share Meddybemps.com with his or her own child. Possibly within the next three or four years?
Meddybemps.com was launched on October 31, 1995 with a little imagination and skill and a desire to produce something of value for children and their parents and teachers. Gradually, one person has told another about our site. One children's site recommended us and then another. Then education sites, parenting sites, libraries and Internet service providers began to recommend us to their visitors.
Today, close to six thousand sites around the world have links to Chateau Meddybemps. We've been the subject of newspaper and magazine articles and have been mentioned in several of books. 101 Best Web Sites for Elementary Teachers named Chateau Meddybemps one of the seven best language Arts site on the World Wide Web. Our site was even named the third best site for children on the Internet for helping them learn phonics by reviewers for ReadingOnline.org, the site of the International Reading Association.
