Born and Bred in the Great Depression

Born and Bred in the Great Depression

East Texas, the 1930s-the Great Depression. Award-winning author Jonah Winter's father grew up with seven siblings in a tiny house on the edge of town. In this picture book, Winter shares his family history in a lyrical text that is clear, honest, and utterly accessible to young readers, accompanied by Kimberly Bulcken Root's rich, gorgeous illustrations. Here is a celebration of family and of making do with what you have-a wonderful classroom book that's also perfect for children and parents to share.
