School Library Journal Review
Gr 3-7-Students have to be at least 13 years old to start an account on most social media sharing sites, but these books, written for a much younger audience, demonstrate some of the skills that may come in handy in the future. The six or seven projects in each volume are uneven in appeal and utility, ranging from a confusing game of Twitter charades to a helpful primer on how to make a video tutorial. Some projects, such as "Geography Gallery" or a "Profile Poster from the Past," could be adapted for classroom or party use, but some, like the "Pin Lab" (a bulletin board poster on which friends can place pushpins to indicate "likes" and "repins"), are just strange off-line approximations of social media posts. VERDICT A bit odd, but may satisfy kids who are fascinated by the online world frequented by older siblings and favorite celebrities. © Copyright 2016.

Horn Book Review
Each book explains its social media site, its unique terminology, founder(s), usage rules, safety measures, and the supplies needed for six or seven related projects. Seemingly aimed at kids too young to really use these high-tech forums, readers are encouraged to create decidedly low-tech projects inspired by them, including collages, flip books, and posters. Photos illustrate most projects. Glos., ind.
