Description

Now kids can find out how tough and exciting life was in America during World War II. This newest edition to the popular American Kids in History Series takes kids back to 1942 and introduces them to two fictional families, the Donatos and the Andersens. Kids can join 11-year-old Frank Donato in San Francisco as he makes a flashlight to use during blackouts and 12-year-old Shirley Andersen on her family's wheat farm in southern Minnesota as she makes patched jeans and fondue. Packed with entertaining and easy projects, games, and recipes, World War II Days takes kids on an exhilarating adventure into the past, where they can create a Victory Garden, make a periscope, invent secret codes, and make lots of toys and games. With this playful book, the past comes alive for kids as never before! David C. King (Hillsdale, NY) has written many books for children and young adults, including Colonial Days, Pioneer Days, Wild West Days, Civil War Days, and Victorian Days. He has previously worked as an educational journalist, a curriculum developer in both history and social studies, and a high school English and history teacher.
