It has become vitally important for kids to learn safe ways to use the internet. Follow RhinoRAM and his friends and learn the three key rules to internet safety with RhinoRAM by Adom M. Cooper. Enzi is a young boy trying to do a homework assignment given by his teacher, Ms. Collision, on the use of mud by rhinoceroses. After asking his father's permission to use the internet, Enzi starts working on his homework when a pop-up suddenly offers Enzi and his father a tempting gift. Through RhinoRAM, they learn that it is a digital attack to gather personal information, and the next day, Enzi helps his classmates learn these crucial aspects of internet safety.

With the rise of internet usage among children, educational books on cybersecurity, like RhinoRAM, have become a must-read for kids. Through an engaging narrative, Adom M. Cooper finds the perfect balance between entertainment and education, telling a compelling story while highlighting the most fundamental aspects of internet safety for young users. Cooper uses an accessible writing style that makes the content easy for even children to grasp and sprinkles some light-hearted humor to make this an enjoyable reading experience.

RhinoRAM, written by Adom M. Cooper and illustrated by LaTosha Maddox, is a children's book where the eponymous Rhino is a cybersecurity advocate teaching Enzi and his dad about Internet safety. He explains that while the Internet offers vast amounts of information, it also poses dangers, like social engineering attacks. Enzi learns to seek permission before using the Internet, with adults supervising. RhinoRAM stresses never sharing personal information in pop-ups unless from trusted sources verified by adults, as hackers can exploit such data. The very next day, a hacker interrupts Enzi's class but is thwarted by RhinoRAM. Enzi and his classmates understand the importance of vigilance online, with RhinoRAM emphasizing the ongoing need for cybersecurity awareness. RhinoRAM delivers his rules: asking permission, adult supervision, and avoiding personal info in pop-ups.

LaTosha Maddox's illustrations are bold and bright in a palette of jewel tones that complement the text. I also appreciated the inclusion of relatable scenarios and a memorable character in the rhino to help make the message resonate with children after they finish the book. Overall, RhinoRAM is a good read for parents and educators looking to instill crucial cybersecurity awareness in children in an entertaining and effective manner.
