Joyce Grant, Kathleen Marcotte
Description: Here's a deep dive into how real journalism works, what fake news is -- and most importantly, how to spot the difference. Organized into chapters that explore fake news and why it's so popular, how real news gets made, some common types of fake news, and how to investigate what you see online, this book is a must-read guide for kids who get most of their information online. With hilarious examples and humorous and lively illustrations, Can You Believe It? teaches critical thinking skills AND makes them fun. Readers will become familiar with everything from clickbait to advertorials, learning along the way about how bias creeps into fake news, why celebrity Instagram posts may not always be truthful, and why they should be extra suspicious of anything that makes them feel super smart.
