The book talks about how a fact has evidence behind it. This evidence comes from a trusted source.

It reinforces that I think, I feel or I like statements are opinions and cannot be proven to be true.

The author looks at different kinds of news media such as a reporter’s job to gather facts. There is also a paragraph on editorials, that are defined as opinions that use facts to support it.

The book also explains that wikis and blogs can be written by anyone and therefore are not a reliable source of facts. It encourages readers to get other sources to back up the information before they accept it.

There are also tests and exercises at the end of the book that reinforces what is being learned.

I recommend this book for kids aged 6-10 years old.
