Product Description:

Publisher Description:

The Internet has been with us for a surprisingly long time (Queen Elizabeth II sent her first email in 1976), and there are many people alive today who do not remember life without it. How did we communicate? Where did we go for information? This book follows the development of information technology from the invention of writing through the earliest computers (earlier than you think!) to the present day. It explains in simple terms how the Internet works, and how it differs from the World Wide Web. An important section at the end discusses how young readers can stay safe online.

Category Description for You Wouldn't Want to _____ Series:

Or would you? Im betting not, especially after reading this series. These interesting books describe exactly what your life would be like if you found yourself in any of these historical situations. The extremely interesting topics and humorous illustrations and captions will captivate young readers while educating them on the very real conditions and aspects of peoples lives in the past. For instance, if you were a civil war soldier, what kind of weapons would you have to use, what is life like in the army, where will you sleep and what will you eat, what happens if you are wounded, and what happened in the famous battles of Gettysburg and Vicksburg? The fun text and variety of funny characters provide lighthearted but factual answers to those questions and share much more about each unique circumstance. Theres a very good chance that you wouldnt want to find yourself in any of these situations; however, youll definitely enjoy reading about them! (Note: although the illustrations are very cartoony, a couple of books in this series may still be a bit graphic for some parents given the nature of the situation.)

This series being revised and will have additional new content including a timeline, originally commissioned maps, "Did You Know" fun facts, and list of related well known events, places or facts.Contact us for availability. ~ Steph/Deanne
