Winter, Jonah The Secret Project, illustrated by Jeanette Winter. PICTURE BOOK. Beach Lane (Simon), 2017. $18.
One day in 1943, a private boys’ school in the New Mexico desert was told to vacate their building. In their place a secret group of men and the people who supported them worked on something called the Gadget – racing to complete their invention before their enemies did.
What an interesting topic for a picture book. I will have to ask my elementary teacher friends if this is taught at that level. I can only see it being useful for high school, really, as a starter. I’d love to hear from the authors about their motivation for this topic in this format.
