Last month, we added a new automobile repair database to replace AllData. The new database is called Auto Repair Source (formerly known as AutoMate) and, unlike AllData, it can be used remotely from home! Powered by MOTOR Information Systems, Auto Repair Source provides the most accurate, authoritative and up-to-date service and repair information for thousands of domestic and imported vehicles.
The practice of PLAY is very important to young children in building their early learning and literacy skills! Play can help children better understand the context behind situations and stories, leading to better reading comprehension and symbolic understanding. Play can also help children in navigating new social relationships and communication skills.
