This is a beautiful and tragic story of the other side of Christmas. Not everyone can be indoors and cozy with family. This book tells the story of a homeless family who is hopeful for Christmas and what they must do on a daily but also during the gift giving season to survive #tmskellington #wintergames #holidayread

(1927) This is a collection of stories based on the author's experiences as a circus laborer in early 20th-C. America, exposing the trade's unsavory underbelly. It's not always an easy read even today, especially scenes of racist violence as the circus travels through the South. I quite liked the direct prose and colorful cast, also the charming pen-and-ink illustrations by William Gropper.

This book was a good read, but it's meant for an older audience of children. This book teaches about history and what people had to do to make money for their families.

Historical fiction and was written in 2007. This book is about a young boy looking and working all over the place during the great depression. The book begins with Rudy's family not having any money or any food because his father lost his job. After that Rudy decided he would go and work out west and send money for the family. He worked a lot of jobs and spent time with a few friends on the way.

“For a minute, he was back home on his own front porch, with Pa strumming and Ma singing, the smell of honeysuckle mixing with the promise of apple pie from the oven.”

This is an important book to have in a classroom because it tells about the Great Depression, which was a very devastating and difficult time for our country. Children need to be aware of this era and how it unfolded.

Genre: Historical Fiction
This is a story about the Great Depression. This is a cool story because although it is based on a very real a true time period of the U.S., the author is able to put a fictional twist on it.
