Did George Washington have wooden teeth? Find out today
Hunter Harris is a fact-meister of the first order. But when his teacher Mr. Dickinson challenges the fourth graders to a presidential fact-finding contest, Hunter finds himself in a showdown with Carmen. "True facts are found in books" declares Hunter, while Carmen insists that the Internet is the best source of knowledge. Who will win—Hunter or Carmen? Books or the Internet?
In this fourth Mrs. Skorupski tale, the librarian with the finest accessories in all of Liberty School shows students how to decide when the Internet is reliable. With the help of the Website Evaluation Gizmo, Hunter discovers that the Internet can provide true facts, Carmen learns that not everything there is true, and together they solve the question of George Washington's teeth.
