Safe Space: A Kid’s Guide to Data Privacy is an activity book that introduces the concept of personal data to children ages 6 to12 and teaches them how to protect themselves. It breaks down in child-friendly language how social media and online gaming platforms work when they sign up to them, how their information can be used, and how and why they should strengthen their privacy settings.
The information presented in Safe Space is eye-opening as it explains what personal details we actually reveal when we use our gadgets online—our location, the time we spend online, what photos or posts we “like,” and so on. Yet the book does not read heavy or too technical. The illustrations on each page are whimsical, and the color-and-play activities are fun and engaging.
