Social Media Survival Guide Review

Computers and  the Digital World Featured Books for 11+ readers Featured Books for 9+ readers Personal Social Health Economic (PSHE)

Essential reading to develop the skills and understanding to navigate the digital world

Benefitting from very clear and attractively designed pages to highlight information and with quirky appealing illustrations and a friendly, informative, but non-patronising and non-lecturing tone, this is a book which will attract readers to pick it up and engage with it. The tone of voice is particularly important to the sensitive pre-teen age group it is aimed at.

They are growing up fast and want to be treated with respect and not just given stern warnings and rules they should stick to. In this case while dealing comprehensively with topics such as privacy settings, direct messaging, bullying, appearance-enhancing filters, influencers and fake news, it is taken for granted that the reader will make up their own minds and have their own choices. By using open ended questioning, literal screen shots of conversations and interactions and explaining how things work and what impact and consequences your actions can have, the reader feels respected.

A popular additional feature of Usborne books has been the facility where useful websites and other resources linked to book can be found. This used to particularly good effect with this title. Throughout the book you are pointed towards additional information and support around topics such as body image, bullying and mental health, as well as direct links to the tools for reporting inappropriate behaviour and images. Safety, mental health and wellbeing are prioritised throughout this extremely useful guide.

A must for school libraries and one that parents will want to have available in the home for their own information too- the excellent glossary will be very helpful to the less media savvy amongst us!

Accessible, friendly and well-pitched for children of 10-plus, although I suspect parents will find it just as useful. - The Bookseller
