Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
With clearly labeled spreads, plenty of white space, sample screens to illustrate his points and hundreds of top Web sites, the Kids' Guide to the Internet by Dan Whitcombe makes a handy reference. From learning how to set up a homepage, to creating a Web site of your own, to finding a game or any topic at all online, it's all here. Groovy graphics, a guide to URL "Hot Spots" and a glossary (Netspeak) round out this indispensable volume. (Feb.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Gr 3-5-The inherent problem with any book on this subject is that it is often dated before it is published. This guide addresses that issue by providing up-to-date links for all of the sites included. After 14 pages of definitions and orientation for getting around on the Internet, the rest of the book is devoted to Web sites. Divided into such categories as games, sports, animals, insects, history, space, and homework help, the volume contains hundreds of sites. The pages are a riot of color using screen shots as well as individual graphics from the Web pages. There is not as much white space as is usually found in DK books, and the amount of information on the page is overwhelming. Each site is rated according to its general review rating, special effects, and educational value. Additional URLs are printed on the tops and bottoms of each page with no other explanation given. Although not colorful, Lisa Trumbauer's "Cool Sites" series (Millbrook) provides a more in-depth look at each category. However, you'd have to buy multiple volumes to get all that's covered in this one.-Yapha Nussbaum Mason, Brentwood Lower School, Los Angeles Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
