Speak to the world with your very own custom website!

Creating a Web Site is the kids' guide to learning basic website design! From planning to perfecting, this book walks you through the entire process of building your own website, with easy-to-read instructions and plenty of pictures every step of the way. Good planning saves you a ton of work, so you'll begin by getting your ideas out of your head and onto paper. Next, you'll find a template that already has the basic features you want, so you can start working on the fun stuff right away. You'll learn all the HTML and CSS you need to make your site look and act the way you want it to, and you'll learn how to add video, images, widgets, and more to make the design your very own! Before you know it, you'll have your own custom-built website showcasing your talents and interests for the world.

If you want your own website, why settle for a basic template that makes your page look like everyone else's? You don't need to build it from scratch—with a few simple lines of code, you can transform a basic template into the site of your dreams. This book shows you how to have fun from page one as you:
• Figure out just what kind of site you want to build
• Create a mood board to bring your ideas into reality
• Choose your favorite template and customize it with CSS and HTML
• Add widgets, pictures, video, and more to make your site your very own

Save yourself sometime - you can teach your kids how to create a website yourself rather than spending money on this book...The content is disconnected- Book refers to frontify.com styleguide creator that is a paid website (provides a 14 day trial!)...There is no linking of sytleguides created and the actual website itself...Even the website that the book is referring to bland and broken
