11/01/2020Gr 6 Up—This series seeks to explain current events, and it succeeds. Both titles provide a thorough examination of the facts and key people involved. Readers will recognize buzzwords from social media and the news, but these titles put those words in context. Coronavirus focuses on the medical and social aspects of the pandemic with little mention of politics; President Trump's impeachment is described in a fair and impartial manner. The writing can be bland for readers who are not interested in the topic, and there is not much on the page to break up the text. However, students who are motivated to learn more will not mind. As a research source, these books hit all the marks. They feature unbiased information from trusted sources. Further reading, an index, and source notes are included. VERDICT This series breaks through the conflicting narratives to give the facts about current events. Recommended for libraries.
