Overview

Newbery Honor author Kathryn Lasky's CHRISTMAS AFTER ALL is back in print with a gorgeous new package! To twelve-year-old Minnie Swift, Christmas is not going to be the time of bounty she's used to. It is 1932 -- the middle of the Great Depression -- and jobs are scarce and Papa seems more worried each day. But when their orphaned cousin comes to live with them, the Swifts are quick to rearrange the beds and make room for her. Minnie, thrilled to have another youngster in the home, is resolved to make this Christmas memorable in spite of the hard times. Through her diary entries, Minnie captures the darkness of the Great Depression, the optimism of a small Midwestern family, the fortitude of the American spirit, and the magic of Christmas.

I love this book. It taught me about the Great Depression. Everyone lost their money. It was a very sad time for everyone. The book itself is well written and easy to understand. I enjoyed this book very much.

My Mom & I bought this book for Great-Granddaughter for Christmas....she is home schooled along with her siblings. She is reading and collecting "The Dear America Series" and started reading them from the library. Her mother suggested some books for her since she loves to read, she is 12 yrs. old...we also purchased a second book from this series.
