When Russia sent Sputnik 1 into space, the country launched not only a satellite but a new age. Many popular stories about American advancements during the space age have gotten some facts wrong and left out others altogether. Fact and Fiction of the Space Age dives into the myths about the history of NASA and space exploration and brings the truth to light. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject. Features include a table of contents, infographics, a glossary, additional resources, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Core Library is an imprint of Abdo Publishing, a division of ABDO.

Fact and Fiction of American History – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Apocryphal stories abound in history; tales like George Washington and the cherry tree, for example. This series addresses such stories, common misconceptions, and forgotten or overlooked figures and events. Everything from misinformation about Paul Revere’s ride found in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem to whether battlefield surgery in the Civil War was done with or without anesthesia is covered in the various titles…. A well-researched series that will spark vigorous discussion in the classroom.
