Fact vs. Opinion Books
Does anyone know of a good book for teaching fact and opinion?

I'm teaching fourth grade, and it will be a review for the students. I would like to read a book that alternates between fact and opinion often, so that we can practice identifying each in context.

I've used a biography to teach this concept before. I chose a book called Obama. Itgives facts about the president but also inserts opinions about his life. Then we made a chart that listed facts from the book and opinions people have about the president. Good tie in to social studies also

Kevin Henkes???
Looks like a Kevin Henkes illustration/book but I can't say for sure which one.

So sorry!
I haven't checked back here in a while. The book is actually called Barack and is by Jonah Winter. The book is a little older and gives details and facts about Obama's early life. My second graders enjoyed reading it and gaining some perspective about the president as a child and young adult.
