Born and Bred in the Great Depression by Jonah Winter - ADVISABLE

Winter, Jonah Born and Bred in the Great Depression. Kimberly Bulcken Root PICTURE BOOK  Schwartz and wade books, 2011.  $17.99 Content: G.  This book is a retelling of the highlights of the Great Depression told by a son after listening to a lifetime of his father’s stories.  Excellent illustrations capture the time period when men looked for jobs so they could take care of their families, when women worked with what they were given to make it last, and the simplicity of a country life.  This book is a synopsis of this family’s experience with the depression and I enjoyed the wonderment and adoration you could tell the author had for his ancestors.  EL and MS-ADVISABLE.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
