New Media Literacy Book Series for Kids
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers and the New York Public Library announce that author Jon Scieszka has launched his brand new series, SPACHEADZ . Children are bombarded with an estimated 500 separate commercial impressions per day. Media Literacy education provides tools to help people critically analyze messages, offers opportunities for learners to broaden their experience of media, and helps them develop creative skills in making their own media messages. Guys’ Read founder and the first National Ambassador for Children’s Literature, Jon Scieszka has decided to make media literacy fun and interactive with his new series SPACEHEADZ.
