Our children are growing up in a digital world with technology right at their fingertips. They're spending more and more time on the web -- so teaching them safe and responsible online behavior is critical. As a media and entertainment company, NBCUniversal is committed to educating parents, teachers and children on using technology responsibly and safely.

That's why we've created Growing Up Online, a free interactive eBook on digital literacy and Internet safety and the first release from The More You Know Learning Series in partnership with NBC News. The eBook was developed with guidance from Common Sense Media and NetSmartz Workshop -- the leading organizations in these areas.

Growing Up Online provides a media-rich learning tool for parents and teachers of children ages 6 and older, as well four video comic book stories for kids. This two-part eBook features easy-to-use and compelling content, engaging instructional videos, discussion questions and key takeaways for conversations about issues of concern. The first part, The Parent Primer, prepares parents for discussions with their children about responsible Internet behavior. Part two, the Parents + Kids Section, contains four entertaining video comic stories focused on real-life situations that may arise when kids go online.

Growing Up Online is available as a FREE download for tablet devices, including Apple's iPad, iPad Mini, Barnes & Noble's Nook Tablet, Amazon's Kindle Fire and Google's Nexus. The book will also be available online for desktop and laptop viewing at
