Potato: A Tale from the Great Depression
When Dorothy's father loses his job and cannot find another, the family borrows a car and sets off for Idaho where jobs picking potatoes can be found. This true story gives children a vivid sense of the Depression on a level they can understand. The illustrations, simple and charming, are a perfect match for the story.
