Matt Covey

“This is a fun, practical book that can be used as a solid addition to any school’s technology curriculum. It helps students make real world connections to the instruction they receive. Educationally, the approach the book takes in helping students make those connections will result in an authentic understanding of why technology can serve a very real purpose in service of others vocationally.”

- Matthew D. Covey, Principal, Sioux Falls Christian Elementary School

David Mulder“I love this book! As a former Technology Coordinator in a K-8 school, I thought a lot about how to help kids see how much the internet already affects their lives.  This book is an excellent way to help them see all the ways the internet shapes the way people work and play. I highly recommend it!”

TriciaI Can Work on the Internet is not only a great book to introduce young students to the internet but to explain to older students some of the possible ways they may use it as well. I am looking forward to sharing this book with my class.”

- Tricia Ochsner, 4th Grade Teacher, Baltic School District 

DeAnna“There are people behind the internet?! Of course there are, but kids today take all of the technology they have at their disposal for granted, and this book lets them know that people work hard to make it all happen.  With the way society and technology are going, working with technology will always be an up and coming career.”

- DeAnna Anema, Children’s Ministry Director, Shalom Christian Reformed Church

Callie“The engaging illustrations and kid friendly real world connections are what make this book shine. Children will be drawn in by the concepts of tablets, apps, and video chatting, and adults may even find they learned something new as well. The book uses developmentally appropriate terminology and situations. Teachers and parents will also appreciate the book’s focus on internet safety. I highly recommend this book to educators as well as to parents. Well done.”

- Callie Schock, Former Educator/Children’s Ministry Director

Rachel Landry“As a parent and the proprietor of a successful internet-based business, I applaud this work by Paul Ten Haken.
I Can Work on the Internet helps young people – and especially their parents and teachers – widen their ideas on career options by understanding the permanence and infinite relevance of the internet. The book is targeted to children, but will undoubtedly open the minds of countless adults as well, by answering a lot of questions we hadn’t even thought to ask and revealing just how much the internet factors into everyday life. This book, and the mentality behind it, should become part of today’s education curriculum.”
