Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In order for readers to enjoy this book they would have to understand the terms—politics, editorial, opinion, cartoon—along with the history of World War II. After the last cartoon in the book, readers can refer to the page featuring a chronology of highlights of WWII. History, social studies, or language arts instructors could utilize this book for illustrating a pictorial political editorial or perspective. Readers can agree or disagree with the opinion and express how they arrived at this point of view. These cartoons encourage critical thinking and analysis skills. This book is part of the "Examining Issues through Political Cartoons" series by Greenhaven Press. It provides readers with a detailed preface analyzing the cartoon's point of view and how it was made. Readers might explore their daily newspapers for current cartoons and editorials, may even try creating their own. 2005, Greenhaven Press, Ages 15 to adult.
