From Booklist:

Gr. 3-6. In this upbeat volume, Granfield reports on newspapers from several points of view. First, she analyzes the different departments and components of a typical paper. Next, she takes readers behind the scenes to catch cameo glimpses of reporters, editors, designers, fact checkers, press workers, and delivery kids at work. The third section shows readers how to publish their own papers, with hints on choosing the name, column spacing, news gathering, ad selling, picture shooting, editing, typing, proofing, doing the layout, printing, and creating headlines. In the final chapter, she offers a series of crafts and other new uses for old newspapers, like serving as odor eaters, pi{}natas, or building blocks. Cartoonlike drawings enliven every page. This volume packs a lot of newspaper facts and lore into an appealing, though busy, format. Fun for browsing and useful for school newspaper units. Carolyn Phelan
