Jean Polly -- a.k.a. Net-Mom® -- has personally inspected some 1.5 million web pages since 1996 -- that's 185,000 sites and counting. Don't tell Jean to get a life. Thank her for single-handedly finding practically everything that's good on the Web for kids and families.
This book's packed with stuff you'd never find on your own. You name it, it's here. You'll find crafts projects. Dinosaur stuff. Reading help. There are interactive musical instruments (even drums -- get out the headphones!) There's the Ask Yoda site. ("Be cool you must. Chill out you should.") Becky's Campfire Songbook. BBC Education's "Geology of the Bathroom." The best homework helper and library sites. Horse-country.com (open your own virtual stable). The Belch Page (personally selected by "Son-of-Net-Mom). And how about Netfrog, the interactive frog dissection (saving real frogs since 1994).
Word is, folks aren't surfing the Web as much nowadays: they know what they want, get on, and get off. But as in the real world, the best stuff is often found far away from the main roads. Get this book, grab the kids, do some old-fashioned surfing, and have some old-fashioned web fun. (Bill Camarda)
