My school doesn't have a subscription to World Book Online, and I'm
interviewing for some positions where World Book Online looks to be THE
digital resource they use most often.  For any of you who use World Book
Online in your district: could you tell me a bit about what features you
like and don't like about it?  I'm curious about how it works: are there
varying levels of difficulty of text, is there a translation option, a
read-aloud option, etc.  My district uses Britannica School, so that's what
I'm used to, and the only resource that probably matches up the closest to
World Book Online.
