This is a very simple children's story with colorful pictures. The youngest child will appreciate the pictures and an older child will understand the story. I remember going to the potato fields of Idaho to glean after the machines had gone through. We collected for our own use but for the same reason: we were financially strapped and the food was free for the digging. There are a lot of stories that paint the Depression as desperate times but mostly people just figured out another way to support the family and the kids were pleased to help. These are good lessons for today's children to learn.

This is a book for the youngsters to learn about the Great Depression. Illustrations are engaging and the text is well written. Schools should be interested in using this book in the classroom.

a great way to teach the history of the depression to the other generation. i used it for a storybook baby shower/baked potato bar, but I remember stories from my grandfather of how food was rationed. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and wanted to keep it for myself!

My little ones ask me to read this to them all the time. They love the pictures and the story is filled with deeper concepts that allow a parent to explain humilty and thankfulness to a child. It's the kind of story that prompts questions and answers and I love that!
