Overview

In these high-profile book-and-DVD packages, a curious cartoon cat shows kids how to play it safe on the Internet More and more kids are playing around on the Internet these days, gathering in chat rooms, sending instant messages, and surfing the Web. Many kids don't realize, however, that there are predators out there waiting to take advantage of them. Written primarily for children in grades K through 5 and their parents, these unique packages explain the dangers that lurk online and show how to play it safe using the adventures of a rambunctious six-toed feline, Faux Paw the Techno Cat. Illustrated throughout in full-color and featuring an animated version of the story on an accompanying DVD, each book teaches kids the "3 Keeps": I KEEP SAFE all my personal information, I KEEP AWAY from online strangers, and I KEEP TALKING to my parents about everything I see on a computer. Produced by the Internet Keep Safe Coalition (www.iKeepSafe.org), a high-profile, nonprofit organization founded by the former first lady of Utah and with First Lady Laura Bush starring as the First Lady in the animated film, these two books are sure to attract widespread media attention. With McDonald's and the Cable Association's Cable in the Classroom already signed on to promote the series, Faux Paw the Techno Cat is destined for stardom-and strong bookstore sales.
