Stacey Montgomery has done a phenomenal job compiling about 375 web sites -- designed for the Black family -- into one resource. Her book is truly a 'one-stop' shopping for information that is divided into 20 categories. There's something for everyone in this book. For the regular Internet user such as myself -- who stays on the lookout for unique educational products for my family -- Montgomery's book is hard to put down. However, for those persons who surf the Internet very little or not at all, 'Black Families Online' is still a powerful resource to have nearby because of its good-to-know information. Thanks to this book, I have already begun compiling a list of my own of places to shop on the web for Christmas items and such. In 'Black Families Online' I've come across web sites that I never knew existed that offer products that I never knew existed........a Multiplication Hip Hop CD and puzzles and interesting games that teach Black history, just to name a few. In addition to providing an annotated list of web sites, Montgomery has added some nice additional touches, too. Quotes throughout the book from web site owners and parents answering the question, 'Why go online?' or stating 'Why my business is online' are also fun to read. This book is a masterpiece. Montgomery should be proud of what obviously took a lot of time and effort. Many thanks to her for a resource that has truly enriched my life. When not in my hands, this book is sure to stay close to my computer. I know I'll be using it often!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

When I first received my copy of Black Families Online: Directory of Online Resources for Black Parents, I was literally speechless. There is so much information contained within this book that any parent will be going through it for weeks and then using it time and time again as a valuable resource. So often, as Black consumers or as parents looking online for information relevant to our families, we end up searching and searching ad nauseam for basic things such as quality multicultural educational tools or Afrocentric gifts. With this book, everything is now at our fingertips and I couldn't be more thrilled. I highly recommend this book for all Black families who utilize the Internet either sporadically or several times a day. You won't be disappointed and I guarantee that you'll run into some great Black websites along the way.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
