ACTIVITIES FOR USING THE INTERNET IN PRIMARY SCHOOLS. By Eta de Cicco, Mike Farmer and Claire Hargrave. Kogan Page pound;29.99

This beginner-friendly guide for primary teachers advises on equipment and offers web-based activities and worksheets which support each curriculum subject. Frequent "How To" boxes make internet jargon seem a lot less like a foreign language.

YOUR OWN WEBSITE. By Bill Thompson. Hodder Children's Books pound;3.99

For nine to 12-year-olds who want to build their own websites. The introduction sets the tone for this guide's fun, down-to-earth style which successfully combines cartoons and simple language.
