This sounds like an interesting book:

It does look interesting. Teaching kids critical thinking skills is so important.

I knew it was a new age when I started noticing my own kids asking, "Is that real?" most every time they would show each other photos or memes online.

At least they're asking, because these days you never know!

When I was in fourth grade, we sat around a table and listened to a series of records called "Fact or Opinion?"

This deep male voice would tell a short story, and then would end with "Is this Fact or Opinion?" and we had to discuss it and understand the difference.

Don't know why they stopped teaching this.
