Latest Reviews

“The youth of today are surrounded by the Internet. Given the correct resources, young adults can effectively navigate both the good and bad aspects. By covering relevant topics, such as privacy, gaming, and cyberbullying, this series aims to show teens how to positively shape their online world. Each chapter heading is a question, such as ‘What Shouldn’t I Post on Social Media?’ Text boxes with supplemental information and skill-sharpening exercises are found throughout the titles. A ‘Fact Sheet’ section at the end of each volume highlights important concepts in bullet points. VERDICT A useful series to help young people have a positive experience when dealing with online technology.”

“With a dozen questions-and-answers, Roesler covers online gaming, from basic definitions to the future of gaming, in this installment in the Tech Smarts series. In addition to the approachable paragraphs, each concise, informative chapter includes a boxed factoid, and some pages have additional, ‘Think About It’ boxes that invite the reader to explore further. The content is refreshingly current; for example, Roesler discusses both sides of the argument about violence and video games, and she reveals that gamers are divided nearly evenly between males and females. Photographs representing diverse groups and age ranges enhance the text, and a fact sheet rounds it out. Best of all, not only can this title inform young readers, but it is perfect for sharing with parents.”
