Reviews by Bill Morgan
It used to be hard to find quality non-fiction, especially
history, for kids. It was dumbed-down, or poorly formatted, or
biased, or written in dry adultese, or some combination of these.
Thankfully, that has changed.
A new generation of high-interest, attractively packaged kids’
books dealing with social justice issues and using leveled
vocabulary are now available. This is a group of some of the best
recent ones that I have used in my years teaching social studies
for social justice.
