"Online Kids, A Young Surfer's Guide to Cyberspace" is a comprehensive guide to the Internet and online services for kids, whether they be newbies or experienced online surfers. It covers every aspect of using cyberspace from a kids point of view, including how to get online and use resources such as the Web, e-mail, and the online services. The bulk of the book is made up of review of thousands of kid-oriented sites by category, such as Astronomy, Where to Get Homework Help, Writing & Reading, Fun & Games and more. And there are also dozens of activities kids can do online, such as making a fun-filled science museum at home, putting together a personalized birthday photo collage, and building a home page. (I've found, by the way, that many parents are buying the book for themselves, to better educate themselves about what their kids are doing online. There's also a section in the book on keeping your kids safe on the Internet.)
Here's what the author, Preson Gralla, tells us about himself: I'm Executive Editor of ZDNet, the online site of the Ziff-Davis Publishing Company (publisher of PC Magazine, FamilyPC, etc.), and have written widely for many publications, including FamilyPC, the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe, and others. I'm the author of six books and live in Cambridge, Massachusetts with my wife and two children.
