The Big Hug books grew out of letters sent to children and their families after their psychology sessions. Each book has its origins in a real need for a real child with a real problem and offers real strategies from a real psychologist. The heart-felt illustrations and simple words aim to simplify tricky situations and soothe strong emotions. The books aim to give children, and the people who care for them, a way to talk about problems.
The Internet is Like a Puddle attends to the wonderful aspects of electronic communication as well as gently discusses some of the possible pitfalls of sharing, chatting and using data. There is a need to be mindful of those who are naive to the potential problems without denying them the wonderful opportunities. The Internet is Like a Puddle describes ways to stay safe and enjoy learning and chatting time on the Internet and to keep life balanced.

Comments about The Internet is Like a Puddle:
I read this book to my 13 yr old to start up a conversation about the dangers of the internet particularly online gaming. I read about it on a blog discussing having a chat to your kids so they have some understanding of the perils of the internet.
Some of the lines in the book " The internet is a bit like a puddle. It can be lots of fun and very useful. But... the internet can also be deeper than it looks."
