The book provides parents with useful strategies designed to help them give kids knowledge and tools to make sense of media messages and determine which are helpful and which are harmful. The book has earned praise from several scholars and media entrepreneurs, including Angela Santomero, creator of the popular children's television shows "Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood" and "Blue's Clues."
