Overview

Children's Press is pleased to introduce True Books for a new generation!

Completely redesigned for today's young, investigative reader, True Books are an indispensable addition to any collection. Each book guides the reader through the facts that nurture their need to know.

The new, dynamic True Books design features:
-- an inviting and interactive page format
-- a readable and attractive typeface
-- large, bold, and brilliant full-color photographs

The True Books series takes the young reader beyond the standard, fact-filled text by adding avenues for further discovery. Each book includes a variety of sidebars, highlighting extra facts that will fascinate children. In the Important Words section, young readers will find a glossary of words that will both challenge and expand their vocabulary. Each book includes a To Find Out More section, where every curious reader can find a list of related books to read and organizations to contact.

True Books also point readers to the vast electronic universe of information on the Internet. Each book will list:
-- e-mail addresses to help the reader contact individuals and organizations
-- appropriate newsgroups and mailing lists
-- FTP sites to download fun and useful software

Begun in the 1950s, True Books are universally embraced as the definitive nonfiction series for young readers. Now in its third incarnation, the True Books series has once again evolved to meet the needs and tastes of modern readers and educators.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-A very basic overview for readers who know very little about the subject rather than instructions for using it. Full-color photographs provide reassurance that the Internet can be used by children of all races, sexes, and abilities, but they don't contribute much in the way of information. In fact, the sample screen of a Veronica search is a case study in locating irrelevant material. World Wide Web is discussed, but the illustration is of the text-only links browser, making the book somewhat out of date already. Still, it is the simplest approach to the Internet available. It teaches a basic vocabulary and can serve as an introduction to a class or to an individual. No precautions appear and none of the controversial aspects of the Internet are mentioned. The book will be best used with youngsters who ask what the Internet is and who can then be referred to more detailed books if they are interested in pursuing it further.-Carolyn Caywood, Virginia Beach Public Library, VA
