Teaching about life during the Great Depression does not have to be a downer! Most children's books on the era provide a balanced account--portraying the harsh realities and tremendous sacrifices as well as accounts of compassionate and brave individuals who were determined to survive in this harsh time.
None of the children's books listed below
focus entirely on the hardships of the era, and none of the books will leave the
reader with a sense of despair and hopelessness. Instead, these 'best books' convey the reality of life during the Great Depression,
but also leave the reader better for having read it.
Below are several other well-recommended children's books about the Great Depression. We don't have dedicated review pages for these books
because we haven't had a chance to read yet, but we wanted to let you
know about them...
To learn more about any of these books, click the book titles to see their listing on Amazon. Note that if you purchase an item, they give us a small referral fee.
