Editorial Reviews

VOYA
In the latest revision of their book, Pedersen and Moss provide a beginner's guide that is both entertaining and informative. Organized as an adventure featuring two newbies, or new Internet users, it is the story of Kate and Zack, typical kids who enroll in Cyberspace Academy to learn how to explore the Internet. Their training covers Internet history and technical information in addition to advice for "being a good internaut," an Internet explorer. The book's format includes chapter introductions, margin notes, and a glossary allowing for its use as both a textbook and a reference manual. The authors cover a variety of topics, from the basic elements of logging on for the first time to some of the most current technology, such as the use of MP3 files for downloading music. Particularly interesting are the ten rules for surfing the 'Net. Here readers are given advice on guarding their personal information, being themselves, and sharing with others. Also included is a technical section with detailed explanations of specific topics mentioned briefly in earlier chapters, such as virus software. Other features are a special section for parents and teachers and an extensive list of Web sites of interest to young people. Although the information in this book would be beneficial to any Internet newbie, the use of the cadet explorer characters and numerous cartoon illustrations make Internet for Kids a particularly good choice for middle or junior high students. Glossary. Index. Illus. VOYA CODES: 4Q 4P M J (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses; Broad general YA appeal; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9). 2001, Price Stern Sloan, 224p,

School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up-The best part of this book for children is the section for parents. The authors provide a common-sense analysis of over-hyped perils and offer excellent advice, including a contract that librarians would do well to consider if they plan to offer public access to the Internet. Information on choosing an Internet access provider is more limited than in books for adults, but the fact that it is included at all makes it clear this book is intended for the whole family, not just kids. When it comes to children, however, the authors seem afraid to rely on the inherent excitement of the Internet and instead create ``CyberSarge,'' costumed like a superhero and sounding like a fast-food come-on, to sugarcoat the information. This unnecessary discount of young people's ability to use straightforward information will turn off many readers. On the other hand, the page layout, with sidebars and white space, has the inviting look of John R. Levine's adult Internet for Dummies (IDG Books, 1993). The information itself is not always clearly presented, e.g. one page uses the term ``newsgroup'' to describe electronic mailing lists. Also UNIX is not a computer ``language.'' Considering how often software copyrights are violated by home users, it is unfortunate the definition of freeware does not mention that the decision to make it free rests with its developer, not the reader of the book. However, since the only comparable book is Deneen Frazier's Internet for Kids (Sybex, 1995), which is much more focused on school projects, Pedersen and Moss's book will serve an immediate purpose. Note: there are several fill-in-the-blank pages for records, notes, and surfer's logs.-Carolyn Caywood, Virginia Beach Public Library
