“Because even young children are media consumers, these volumes in the Digital Citizenship series help them become savvy users. Colorful layouts and direct, conversational text comprise examples that are both clear and timely to highlight each topic. Facts and Opinions educates students on creating search topics, identifying keywords, various types of sources (e.g., websites, newspapers, etc.), and selecting the most reliable and current information. It then goes beyond its title to give helpful tips on gathering, organizing, and presenting information in a report. Staying Safe Online introduces several potential dangers, such as cyberbullying, phishing, and adults who pose as children online, and offers advice on protecting one’s privacy and using the internet and social media responsibly. Using Primary Sources describes numerous types of primary sources, from journals and videos to artifacts and homes; where to find them, including libraries, in archives, and online; and how to avoid plagiarism. Each book also features sidebars that encourage children to think beyond the topic, a concluding activity or checklist, and a glossary. In this age of information overload, this series provides students with appropriate tools for media literacy.” —Angela Leeper
