I recently learned about the Kid Rex search engine from the Alt Search Engines blog.  It’s supposed to be a “kid-friendly” search engine.

I was actually pretty impressed when I tested it out on a few queries (Abraham Lincoln, Roman Gladiator).  The results that it delivered were accessible to Intermediate English Language Learners.

The results are text-only, so it’s not as good as some of the search engines on The Best Search Engines For ESL/EFL Learners — 2008 list that provide thumbnail images, but its selective listing does make it a decent option for students.

I’ve placed the link on my website under Search Engines.
