… bought this book for my first graders because I love Julia Cook’s books I bought this book for my first graders because I love Julia Cook’s books, but it was a bit wordy for first graders. I would save it for 2nd and above.

Guidance on posting online not presented effectively Lot of good information and guidance on being nice to others while online, but this book has too many lessons crammed into each page. The pictures are likely to be most appreciated by younger kids, but the guidance is for the older grades, so there’s some disharmony here. I think most kids will quickly realize this is basically a lesson, or rather, many lessons, and they will lose interest. Not an effective tool for parents or teachers.

Julia Cook nails it again! Julia Cook nails it again! This is a great book for children/students to help them understand the basics of social media/internet pitfalls. She incorporates the THINK acronym in the story which is awesome! I would recommend this book for 2nd till about 5th grade.
