Fantastic book for kids (and their parents): If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It

Interview with Toronto author Laura Alary about her picture book The Astronomer Who Questioned Everything (Maria Mitchell)

I was fascinated to learn that the American astronomer Vera Rubin first realized that women could be astronomers when she read a children’s book about Maria Mitchell! Years later, when it was time for her to apply to university, she chose Vassar College because she remembered that Maria Mitchell had once taught there, and she figured it would be a welcoming place for women in science. I love this because it shows how powerful a book can be in the life of a child. Read my Q&A with Toronto author Laura Alary.

Q&A with journalist Joyce Grant about new book that teaches kids (and adults) how to spot fake news

"If your child was going swimming, especially if the waters might be choppy, you’d give them a lifejacket and you’d teach them how to swim. Learning how to spot fake news, understanding why it’s not good and knowing what to do about it is like that. If our kids are going to dive into the choppy waters of the internet - and they are, whether we like it or not - we’d better make sure they know how to swim." I interview journalist and author Joyce Grant about her new book Can You Believe It? How to Spot Fake News and Find the Facts.
