iKeepSafe, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a safe digital landscape for children, schools and families, recently launched the sixth installment of the Faux Paw the Techno Cat narrated e-book series, Faux Paw and the Unfortunate Upload. This e-book covers digital ethics for kids, helping them to understand how their behaviors online can impact their relationships in real life.
The Faux Paw e-book series is a free resource for parents, educators, and caregivers to help teach children the importance of safety and security online. “With more children spending time online due to COVID-19 school closures, it’s more important than ever for parents and teachers to ensure their children are staying safe while using digital devices,” says Jacalyn Leavitt, founder of iKeepSafe and former First Lady of Utah. “This book — and the rest of the Faux Paw series — is an excellent resource for parents and educators to help keep their children safe when using the internet.”
Each book in the Faux Paw series covers a separate online safety topic for kids, including how to handle a cyberbully, balancing real life with screen time, and how to make healthy media choices. The books are available in PDF format through the iKeepSafe website, or can be viewed on the iKeepSafe YouTube channel as either a narrated e-book or animated cartoon.
“In an effort to help parents and teachers through these uncertain times, we have expedited the release of this newest e-book in the Faux Paw series,” says Amber Lindsay, iKeepSafe president and CEO. “It is our hope that these free resources can help guide the conversation around internet safety and online security between parents, teachers, and their children and students — especially as online distance learning activities grow in popularity.”
