Editorial Reviews

“If you are a parent or educator please consider getting this excellent picture book that explores cyber safety in a fabulous and child friendly way. Kim Maslin has written a wonderful resource to help educate our precious children”

– Maggie Dent, Parenting Author and Educator

“Thank you for this wonderful book and teaching resource. I have been reading the stories to my Year 3 class as part of our health program to reinforce healthy online behaviors. In particular, my class really connected with the story of the overly playful platypus. This story evoked a lot of discussion about too much screen time and, as a class, we have set a challenge to see if we can achieve ‘screen free’ days in the school holidays (me included!!) The Zappar app is a bonus as it adds an extension to the stories in a technological way that our little digital citizens of the world can relate to. On a personal note, as a parent, this book has helped me to encourage discussions with my fourteen and ten-year-old on cybersafety. I will definitely be recommending this book to parents and teachers as a fun and engaging too to encourage discussions and decisions on safe and healthy use of technological devices and online programs”
