Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-These colorful British imports can be helpful to students who need guidance getting started with the Internet as well as to advanced users who want to fine-tune their skills. With spot illustrations, boxes, or dialogue balloons on every page, the format is a bit cluttered but easy to navigate. Both books cover some of the same topics, but Chilling Out emphasizes using the Internet for activities such as chatting, games, creating electronic cards, etc. Homework Busters explains both simple and advanced searching techniques, discusses accuracy of information, and gives guidelines for a sample Web project and making and publishing a Web page. Introductions explain what the Internet is and how to get connected. There are cautions about providing personal information, avoiding advertisements, copying (cutting and pasting without citing), and tying up the phone line. These titles don't have to be read in front-to-back sequence as each section can be used independently.-Eunice Weech, M. L.
