Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4—6—While each volume in this series focuses on a different area, similar message are found in all of them: think before you send, follow the rules, keep private information safe, don't be a bully, and don't be afraid to ask an adult for help. Beyond these basics, important topics covered include monitoring one's online presence; the role of real money in virtual games; the risk of using social networking apps on a cell phone; and the key to a solid username and password. Each title also includes a reminder to unplug and enjoy real life. Bold charts and graphics and large color photos and images add a magazinelike twist to the textbook format. "In the News" text boxes relate anecdotes and facts while "Talk About It" boxes offer up scenarios to prompt critical thinking and excellent home or school conversations. Vocabulary words are in bold and defined at the bottoms of the pages on which they appear as well as in glossaries with pronunciation guides. Must-have titles for reports and self-education alike.
Children's Literature - Elisabeth Greenberg
This “FactFinders” book defines a student’s online world of social networking, discusses how their online life can determine their online reputation, and covers how to make smart decisions through “talk-about-it” boxes. How can you protect yourself and your reputation? Follow certain rules, determine which information should be private and which public, and be careful about both cyberbullies and masqueraders (adults pretending to be children). The book also poses some new questions, such as how to share photos responsibly and how to choose apps which still allow privacy. In a discussion about making mistakes on social networking sites, it suggests ways of fixing them and warns even young children of future consequences in terms of college or job searches. By covering a wide array of topics in simple language, this book fills a need for students exploring the social networking world without tech-aware-adult supervision. Reviewer: Elisabeth Greenberg AGERANGE: Ages 8 to 12.
