Carter Reads the Newspaper by Deborah Hopkinson


This book about Carter Woodson teaches the reader about the father of Black History Month. The format and illustrations indicate that it is written for a very young audience, however the words chosen make it more appropriate for a short nonfiction text for upper elementary kids and would lend itself better to a short non-fiction piece like the kind you find in a state test.

I am unimpressed with the book, although I did learn a tiny bit about Carter Woodson of whom I had never heard previously.
