The Story of Watergate
Submitter: I found this book in the juvenile nonfiction section of my small public library. Is it important for kids to learn about history? Definitely. Will any of them pick up this title to read about Watergate? I doubt it. The cover as well as the insides need to be updated, and I’m betting most of the kids who visit my library after school don’t even know what Watergate was.
Holly: Oooh, but those suited-up, balding white men on the cover with the orangey-pink background look super exciting! Imagine the drama and intrigue to be found in this book! Yeah, kids won’t see it either.
