Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ru Story-Huffman
This book is designed to provide an introduction to the Internet, including searching for and retrieving information via the World Wide Web. The Internet is a vast system of computers and allows users to find information, friends, statistics, do research, learn new concepts, or just have fun. The possibilities of the Internet are limitless. But, the Internet can be confusing to the new user, and The Internet for Beginners attempts to alleviate some of that confusion. This book offers advice, information on computer equipment, Internet service providers, e-mail, surfing the net, the history of the Internet, and steps needed to connect to the Web. Through this richly illustrated and easily accessible book, children and adults have the opportunity to become "connected." The Internet has spawned a new set of terminology, and this book provides definitions, answers to common questions, and vital information. The illustrations are important, as the Internet is a visual apparatus, and they aid in understanding the concept being presented. Although written primarily for children, The Internet for Beginners would be an excellent book for use in the classroom, home, library, or by adults. A listing of Internet service providers, selected Internet sites for software, games, a glossary of terms and net slang, and index are added bonuses to this volume.
