Sources are vital building blocks of news because they provide the facts of news stories. In the Internet age, as more readers consume news on various websites and social media platforms, it is important for young readers to be able to determine which sources qualify as good sources of information and which qualify as nothing more than misinformation or rumors. This book helps young readers to explore the sources of their information, defines what both good and bad sources are, and teaches young readers why it is important to ask themselves, Are these good sources of information?
