Editorial Reviews for this title:
Hey kids--got a computer? Ready and eager to go online? That can be a really cool thing to do...but parents know that sometimes cyberspace isn't a very friendly or safe place for youngsters. Welcome to Internet @ction! Slip in the super CD ROM and it feels as if you're hooked up to the web. But it keeps children out of chat rooms and away from inappropriate material while still giving webcrawlers-in-training the computer knowledge they need. Pull up two chairs (for the child and a parent) and begin by installing the CD. Don't worry--it's pretty simple. You'll arrive at the "home page." Meet your browser, play games and activities designed to practice skills, send some e-mail, use search engines, and find out how to surf the web like a pro. And, when you're finally ready to go on the real thing, you'll be able to copy pictures, download clip art, find help with homework, plug into web radio, and more. Plus: an all-important section on Internet safety, including filters to keep curious eyes from straying where they shouldn't go.
