Face it: there’s too much news. At Newser, we choose the most important stories from hundreds of US and international sources and reduce them to a headline, picture, and two paragraphs. And we do it 24/7—you can come back morning, noon, night (and in between) for something new that matters.
It’s got a wide variety of sources and sections and, like most aggregators, lets you personalize the site to fit your interests.
It does a nice job of incorporating images as the “news holder.” As a visual learner, I really like it. I’m guessing a lot of your kids will too.
