"Bias in America" (ReferencePoint) is a fantastic series that would stand out in the middle grade social sciences section of any library.
Gr 6 Up–This informative series details the experiences and histories of five marginalized groups in America. Each title provides a historical overview, an analysis of current issues, and suggestions for future solutions. The prose reads well; personal stories and specific examples connect readers to the situations discussed. While images and colorful graphics are included to increase appeal, the titles are text heavy. But don’t let this be a turnoff; the writing style is captivating. A table of contents, an index, source notes, prominent organizations to follow, and further resources are included. VERDICT An outstanding series that delivers a thoughtful discussion of past and present challenges that impact marginalized communities.
