The Great Depression

We've been learning about the Great Depression in our school this week. We checked out some great books from our local library that we really enjoyed.

"Leah's Pony" written by Elizabeth Friedrich is a heartwarming tale of a little girl and her pony during the Great Depression. Chase says it is a must read for anyone learning about the Dust Bowl and the hard times of the Great Depression.

"The Gardener" by Sarah Stewart is another precious book that takes place during the Great Depression. It is the story of a young girl who is sent from her on the farm to live with her uncle in the city when her parents are affected by the financial turmoil of the Great Depression.

Even if you aren't learning about the Great Depression, these are great books to add to your children's library.
