Keeping pre-teens and teenagers safe on the internet starts before our children know what a keyboard is.
Like most important life lessons, teaching online safety begins in early childhood. The Savvy Cyber Kids are just the right playmates for pre-school children and Emma and Tony speak their language.
In The Savvy Cyber Kids at Home: The Family Gets a Computer, children learn to protect their personal information, like their name and physical location through their secret Savvy Cyber Kid identity. Through traditional early childhood teaching tools, this colorful book reinforces the message of online safety with pictures and rhyme. This playful tool and the Savvy Cyber Kids friends teach our children to keep their information private before they start playing in the virtual world.
In this day and age a computer is a part of most everyone's life, young and old alike. "Savvy Cyber Kids at Home" is a helpful tool to help young children get orientated to the proper use of the computer as a tool. In this book, the children get a new computer in their house and are taught the reasons for picking a proper user name. They are shown why it is important to protect their personal information while connecting with friends online and how to protect themselves from giving out information to others that may not be safe in the wrong hands.
This is a wonderful illustrated educational story book that will enlighten your young new user of the safety factors regarding user names and personal information. We are proud to award this book, "The Savvy Cyber Kids at Home: The Family Gets a Computer", the Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for all ages.
