About this item

Everybody believes they're immune to propaganda, but everyone is wrong about that. Propaganda assaults us daily, on tv, on the internet, on the streets of our cities; everywhere we look, and even when we don't think we're looking. Easy-to-understand text, simple infographics, and lots of examples helps kids learn how to crack the code of propaganda and learn how to use their brains to decide when they are being manipulated into believing lies presented as the truth.
