Overview

Most students are familiar with the World Wide Web, but few are familiar with the primary underlying technology that makes it possible: HTML. A Kid’s Guide to Creating Web Pages for Home and School is designed for those who have grown up with computers but who have never had the chance to create their own web sites. Written by a kid for kids, this book leads students step-by-step through the basic functionalities of HTML, all with an inquisitive, friendly tone that encourages experimentation. Each section focuses on a specific project and includes sample computer screens to demonstrate the basic site being developed. Once practiced and learned, the individual projects and lessons are integrated into a single web site that can be "published" on the web. Also included are more advanced techniques for web page design, including sound, animation, and the uses of Javascript, Java, and Flash, as well as off- and online resources for readers to investigate.

"A great introduction to HTML."
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up-A clear, concise how-to book. Starting with the basics of creating a folder and an HTML page, readers will produce a Web page in a very short period of time. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow, and the illustrations provide practice exercises. Sample pages show what the finished products should look like. Each chapter has a brief summary and challenge questions. Solutions appear on the author's Web site. This is a much-needed resource for students who are comfortable with a computer and want to do more than cut and paste.-Kathleen A.

It is a great book that once you have it u want to sit down at the computer. It is a way to learn witout getting confused. It does not get in to flash player but it gives u some javascript and it is easy to follow the steps.
