Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6Lampton's introductions to home-page design and the World Wide Web are presented in an easy-to-follow, appealing format that includes color-highlighted subheadings, italicized terms, and well-reproduced, well-captioned color photos of computer screens to illustrate the information presented in the texts. Terms that are clearly explained in the texts are also included in a glossary. In Home Page, the more difficult of the two topics, readers are walked through the process of building a Web page. Use of the text editor, HTML tags, typefaces, anchors, and pictures are all presented in simple terminology that even novices can easily understand. After completing this short introduction, children should be able to create a fairly sophisticated Web page, or even a Web site, complete with illustrations and hyperlinks. This author has a knack for involving young readers in the process at hand from page one, never allowing them to consider the difficulty of what he is asking them to do. In The World Wide Web, the emphasis is on how to navigate the Web. Explanations of terms such as hyperlink, URL, bookmark, Web indexes, and search engines offer a solid base for novices. The final chapter, an introduction to some interesting Web sites, offers encouragement, acknowledging that some sites will change. While Home Page will probably be the more requested of these two books, both volumes will be valuable additions to most libraries.Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
