A PORTRAIT OF HISTORY

If a picture says a thousand words, then the American Museum of Photography is the ultimate storybook. This Web site features the who's who of famous shutterbugs. Focus in on http://www. photographymuseum.com/ to enjoy all of the features and exhibitions. You'll meet Matthew Brady, the legendary Civil War photographer who captured Abe Lincoln's weathered face for a nation. The museum also has tours of architecture and natural photography, as well as favorite portraits. With its endless personalities and art, this museum has some serious depth of field. Say cheese!

SONGS AND RHYMES OF ALL NATIONS

Learn the tunes and poems that kids grow up with all over the planet by paying a visit to Mama Lisa. Give her a buzz at http://www.mamalisa.com/world/ and you'll be "Yankee Doodling" and "Frere Jacque"-ing around the clock. Just click on a continent or a country name, and explore. With music samples and lyrics right there, why not have a sing-along? From Apache chants to Portuguese dances, you'll find a window to the world through rhymes. Find out what Italian kids call out while they're catching fireflies and what Japanese kids sing instead of "Rain, Rain, Go Away!" when they're stomping through puddles. So, click and be jolly, for now and all time.

Your computer's the source for many a rhyme.
