You're a parent and you want to keep your kids safe online...but you don't want to scare the daylights out of them. A Smart Girl's Guide is a great place to start, helping your daughter(s) understand more about how the Internet and technology work, why it's not smart to share personal information online, and how to get the most out of the Internet and technology. This book will help protect your kids without terrifying them about Internet predators (we parents worry about that enough) and gives girls smart, practical ways to handle themselves in situations ranging from how to cope with a cyber-bully to how to use the Internet for homework and research. Best of all, it reinforces the bond between child and parent, and gives parents a way to talk about these important issues in a way girls will respond and relate to.

Leave it to American Girl to release the most complete guide to helping girls connect with friends, find what they need and stay safe online. I absolutely love everything about this book!! It's an engaging quick read and handy resource complete with a quiz to test if you are ready to connect and how private are you? These topics are vital in today's world: releasing personal data online, meeting offline, tech talk, email do's and don'ts, instant messaging, blogs, bullies, social networks and so much more! It's the 411 for staying safe, connected and informed!

Just what I needed for my 'tweens'. It's filled with useful information that even I can use. Great for children of all internet ages. Thanks American Girl for another fine book. You chose a great subject.

I hate to admit it but my 7 year old daughter is on the family pc daily. She is very smart and quick to pick up new things. I wanted to provide her with a guide for internet safety as I had seen her chatting with fellow game players one day and I didnt realize she even knew how to. We had an internet safety talk and I let her read the book on her own, the reading is easy material for her.

Overall, this book covers safety, fun, and how to use the Internet and all it has to offer which helps to not scare her away from the Internet...Good basic book!

I got the book for my nine year old sister. Its made for about that age give or take a few years. She loved it. It helped her understand why mom and dad need to be around when she gets online.

Ok.I am only 10,but I got this book on my own.I gotta say, this book is a great way for girls to learn about internet safety. The book is not a lecturing book,it has examples from other girls,fun quizzes,and it breaks the truth to girls who are not that internet savvy.my parents did not make me buy this book.it is a little overpriced at $8.15,but it is so worth it!!!!!!this is a definite 5 stars!!!!!!(and if I could,I'd rate it 99.9!!!!!!!!)

This is a good book for young girls, pre-teens about using the internet. Good guidelines on what NOT to put online and the dangers of allowing too much of your information to be viewed. The internet is not scary to kids and they tend to put everything online. This book gives some good advice.

My daughter (almost 11) found the book very helpful and could not stop reading it.
Personally, I found it litte outdated and needs some update with all the technology progress happened since writing this book :)
