    • There was a lot of information packed in this book. I used it in my homeschool classroom. My 9, 11, and 13 yo would read a few chapters at a time on their own and we expanded on the info in class each day. It was a super spine book for our study of the Great Depression. I also appreciated the sidebars and photos included in the text.
