Internet safety

Children, make sure you follow these three simple rules when using the internet:

  1. Always ask an adult's permission before using the internet.
  2. Never give out personal information, such as your name, address, school or telephone number.
  3. If a website asks you to type in your name or email address, check with an adult first.

For more tips, see Internet safety for children.

Reader Reviews

Excellent
My 6 year old found this interesting, informative and readable. His elder sister (9) read through and learned the facts ready to impress teacher on Monday morning and even the two year old liked listening and looking at the pictures. We used it as a start for researching topic work and it has gone into school this week to share with the whole class.
