Mercy! Mercy Watson’s website has something for everyone…including stacks of buttered toast

Mercy Watson,, accessed July 27, 2010.

Kate DiCamillo’s unusual porcine heroine has quite a presence on the Web, thanks to Candlewick Press.  Children can explore Mercy’s neighborhood and play games.  Parents and teachers can find resources like word search puzzles and a letter of introduction by DiCamillo from their tab.  Navigation is a breeze thanks to an ever-present menu across the bottom of the page.  A large, clickable image of Mercy will always take surfers back to the “Welcome to Deckawoo Drive” page.

Children will enjoy the games.  Educators (parents and/or teachers) will use the resources available to them.  This site definitely needs to be included on a children’s library links page, a pathfinder of educational games for children, and resources for educators and families.
