The internet makes it possible for kids to have easy access to information, but it is important that children and teens should know how to spot real from fake.
#YouThink: Fight Fake News is a zine-style activity book geared for kids ages 12 to 18. It unpacks false information and the many forms that it may take such as misleading information, fake photos, and deep fakes. It also discusses how context matters and even our emotional reaction to posts can be a sign that it is fake.
#YouThink is filled with information and, in the zine spirit, the layout is light-hearted and entertaining. The book comes with letters from different experts from science, health, media, and politics on how to be safe.
BUY ONE, DONATE TWO! With every purchase of this book, CANVAS will give two books to two children from poor and disadvantaged communities in the Philippines through the One Million Books for One Million Filipino Children Campaign.
ALEXINE: Recommendation is for 12yo but Adriana's 10yo and she poured over this in one sitting. A wealth of information even adults will find useful. HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR ALL AGES!
ADRIANA: I really like liked this book, I learned a lot. Now I finally understand a lot of conversation my parents have been having about internet concerns. I am definitely more aware now and I even remember to remind mom about internet safety.
