About the Books
These books are part of the Our Digital World series from Lerner’s Lightning Bolt Books. They’re written simply for kids in grades K-2, but still contain lots of cool facts.
These books were challenging to write, because the advanced vocabulary needed to explain technology ideas kept pushing the reading level too high. I had to revise the manuscripts over and over again until I got it right.
Tech Support laughed at me when I told him I was writing books about computers – he’s the one I call whenever mine stops working.
My brother had the first Nintendo Entertainment System on our block. I vividly remember all the neighbourhood kids crowding in our basement waiting for their turn to play Super Mario Brothers!
