Book Overview

On October 29, 1929, life in the United States took a turn for the worst. The stock market - the system that controls money in America - plunged to a record low. But this event was only the beginning of many bad years to come. By the early 1930s, one out of three people was not working. People lost their jobs, their houses, or both and ended up in shantytowns called Hoovervilles named for the president at the time of the crash. By 1933, many banks had gone under. Though the U.S. has seen other times of struggle, the Great Depression remains one of the hardest and most widespread tragedies in American history. Now it is represented clearly and with 80 illustrations in our What Was.? series.

   Great info and easy reader
My family comes from a long line of farmers, so I thought this would be some good history for my seven-year-old. While reading, I learned a lot more about depression than I ever knew. These books are such an amazing series for children and momsdads ( ).

   So impressed!
I bought it to use during the home school, but did not have very high hopes. I discovered, however, that the author did a wonderful job of synthesizing a complicated piece of history and taking it in a way that anyone can understand. She covers all the important things that everyone should know about the Depression, including its causes and why it ended. I highly recommend '' this book.

   Excellent Introduction to the Great Depression
This book is part of a series aimed at historical people to place young events and people in perspective. The vocabulary is fairly simple, but adults who want to find an overview of certain events will also find this a helpful read. Lots of great pictures as well as illustrations.

   Engaging book, excellent information
Everything is phenomenal in the Who Was, What Was, Where Is series. This is no exception. I also love the black and white photos at the back of the book. Informative, engaging and I recommend buying every one in the series on which you can get your hands. As a former teacher of 4, 5, 6th grade, I can attest that my students loved this series of books and were one of the most popular classroom checks.

   Both kids and adults can benefit from reading this book
I am a grown man, but I enjoyed reading this book about the Great Depression thoroughly. The 1930s were certainly a turbulent time for most Americans, but President Franklin D. Roosevelt did what he could in his power to improve America economically and socially.

   While this book has lots of good pictures and is a simple read
While this book has a number of beautiful pictures and is a simple read, it has a very strong liberal slant to it. It would have been better if the writer would have stayed objective or would have shared both the conservative and the liberal points of view.
