The Internet is brilliant. It can help you keep you in touch with your friends and family via social media and you can use it to find out about all sorts of amazing things - like what your favourite band is up to and it's a great tool for showcasing your ideas and talents. But the Internet does have a darker side. Some people use it to commit crimes and to try to hurt other people. Cyber-bullying, stalking, and fraud (such as where people try to use your personal details to commit a crime) are just some of the things you should be aware of when you are using the Internet. This book will help you stay safe online. Full of advice about how to spot fakes - people who aren't who they say they are, what to do if you think you are being bullied and how to protect your personal details. This book is an essential guide for any child who uses the Internet, whether you access it on a computer, tablet or smartphone. Keeping Safe is a series of four books aimed at children aged 9+, dealing with the hot topics on staying safe in the modern world.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
