Overview

The temperature is about 40 degrees on this cold November morning. It’s only 6:30 AM, but a line has already formed outside of the kitchen. One by one, the men come from different directions and place themselves at the back of the line. They shuffle back and forth, from one foot to the other, trying to keep warm. Their noses can smell the freshly brewed coffee and the hot doughnuts as they are served to the men ahead of them. One by one, the men enter the kitchen, have a quick bite to eat, and then head out to the street. They fan out and go from business to business, looking for work. At the end of the day, they come back here to this line and wait their turn for a small bowl of soup.

And so begins the fascinating history of the Great Depression. It's hard to imagine America ever faced times so hard, but in this book, just for kids, you'll find out what happened and what it was like to be a kid during these times.
