Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Paula McMillen
This is a short, colorfully formatted set of guidelines for young computer users. Each chapter is essentially just one or two large text paragraphs, usually with one or two key words highlighted and defined at the bottom of the page. Suggestions include working with a trusted adult, protecting passwords, never sharing personal information, reporting online bullying, and using caution when opening e-mail attachments. The book is commended for using photographs with individuals of various ethnic backgrounds; however, it would have been preferable to keep the subjects of those photographs in the age range of the intended audience, instead of including adults as the computer users. The text closes with a sample of a “Safety Pledge” to be signed by child and adult, a glossary, short bibliography, a link to Capstone’s FactHound website, and a brief index. This is a useful addition to any elementary classroom or school library needing additional material on Internet safety. Part of the “First Facts: Staying Safe” series. Reviewer: Paula McMillen, Ph.D.; Ages 6 to 10.

Meet the Author

Sally Lee is the author of numerous nonfiction books for readers from kindergarten through high school. Her interest in children’s literature began at the University of Missouri where she received her degree in education. Her years of teaching gave her desire to help children learn.
When she left the classroom to raise her own son and daughter, writing nonfiction became a way to continue educating children. Her favorite part of writing nonfiction is doing research. It reminds her of a treasure hunt, especially when it uncovers off-beat facts that nobody else knows. It also satisfies her own curiosity about the world. Sally and her husband live in Dallas, Texas, with their children and grandchildren nearby.
