This is an updated and expanded edition of a comprehensive guide to the Internet designed especially for kids and their parents. The book also acts as a tutorial on how to use the Internet effectively as a family. It also includes a "Large Countries" section, with information on hundreds of countries around the world. The "Parenting and Family" listings is moved to the appendix, making the book strictly kid-oriented, but giving parents the information they need to be more effective parents.

There are enough relevant sites in this energetic volume to satisfy the most curious of young scholars.From Library Journal:
This reference work for kids has contributions from moms, librarians (Polly is the previous author of this column), teachers, and, of course, kids. The second edition includes 3400 resources, all annotated and frequently illustrated with hotlists that direct readers to sites for homework help, games, cartoons, preschoolers, and much more. Expanded from the first edition is a feature called "Postcards from the Net," which gives a behind-the-scenes look at favorite sites, and a brand new section called "Countries of the World," which offers kid-type information, such as the national dog of Korea and wedding customs in distant countries.
