Dangers on the Internet
Staying safe on-line
Rothman
2000

This is part of one of those series that tackle issues for teens. This book was just fine for the early 2000s. It was before Facebook and other social media, which presents its own kind of “danger.” This book really doesn’t address dangers, but more is about standards of behavior. It also assumes that the kids are low tech, which isn’t necessarily wrong for the time. This book is really not helpful anymore.

Radiation Alert!

Radiation Alert
Poch
1985

Remember 3 Mile Island? This began a serious discussion of radiation, nuclear power, and safety. This book was published a few years after and probably was a slam dunk as a library purchase in the 1980s. At the time of this writing, this book was circulating. The book also had an RFID tag affixed so I can only imagine the holding library felt that it was worth keeping into the mid 1990s, as that is when the library automated.
