The Sad Little Fact

Cover: 'The Sad Little Fact'

Staff Review: "The Sad Little Fact" by Jonah Winter

★★★★★

This book allows its readers to meet the Sad Little Fact and many other little facts along the way. The Sad Little Fact lives in a world in which facts are dismissed and ultimately deemed "fake," then thrown away. The authorities of the world declare that lies are facts, and the world grows dark and dreary. However, hope is on the horizon as a band of fact-finders discover all of the lost facts and show them to the rest of the world. The facts return triumphantly, spreading truth as it was meant to be.  

This is a wonderfully smart book for kids, especially in the world we live in today, and is a great way to teach children about facts, information, and falsehoods. I felt sad, but also proud, that there was a book like this to read to my kids. The story is simply told, entertaining, and very important!

Audience: children | Genre: fiction
