Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "These important new books in the What's the Issue? series introduce big issues without talking down to the audience of elementary-age readers. The writing seems dense at first glance, but the material is gripping. Young readers may appreciate that the texts, although informative, treat them as serious thinkers capable of comprehending and being part of the debate on and solution to tough issues. Though the books take a lightly progressive point of view, they are strongly rooted in facts and present multiple sides fairly, when appropriate. What's Intolerance?, Alexander consistently treats intolerance of others as wrong, writing It's important to fight against intolerance to make everyone feel welcome and accepted. In today's world especially, these books are a valuable resource for nurturing informed citizens who can engage productively with a variety of social and political issues.--Aronin, Miriam Copyright 2018 Booklist"
