Christmas After All:The Great Depression Diary of Minnie Swift – 24

Christmas After All:The Great Depression Diary of Minnie Swift – By Kathryn Lasky
This book tells about the depression from the view point of a young 11 year old girl. Her cousin comes to live with them that has never seen a toilet or hear of Buck Rodgers. The family does lots of things to save money. They close off some of the other rooms for heat. The kids all pass their clothes down to the younger ones. Minnie gets very worried when her father leaves without telling anyone. Momma and Ozzie sell some things and hire a private detective. I want you to read the book to discover for yourself if they get to have Christmas After All.
