Computers and technology are omnipresent today. Screens abound and with them frequent contact with our loved ones far away ("Hey Grammy!"), instantaneous access to information ("Yes, it looks like pelicans really do eat crabs!"), directions to new places and many more awesome opportunities. But they also bring with them dangers that we, as parents, are growing increasingly aware of. Is the solution to lock away all screens and return to a frontier lifestyle? Perhaps. But more likely it's simply to teach our children wise technology usage and model good behavior. Books can always help, so here are a few worth investigating as you encourage your children to be wise, unplug and use computers and technology to do awesome things (like code!) rather than just waste time. And don't worry, we threw in a few about computer history as well... because who doesn't love Ada Lovelace!?
