Children's LiteratureThis volume in the 'Witness to History" series mixes historical fact, old photographs and personal accounts to bring that sad chapter in our nation's history to life for older elementary and middle school students. The complicated social and economic factors that led to the Depression are explained in detail using appropriate vocabulary enhanced by the inclusion of a glossary. It is a fascinating story that is well researched and interestingly told. It is difficult for students today to imagine what life was like during these times, but this volume is a perfect beginning for exploring this complex event and its far-reaching effects. The photos alone are eye opener. An index and sources for further study are included. 2003, Heinemann Library, Ages 9 to 12.
