Christmas is eagerly awaited by Lulu, a young girl living in a small Wisconsin town during the Great Depression. Anticipation is transformed into anxiety when Daddy loses his job, doubts about Santa flicker, and that Shirley Temple doll seems further away than ever. Mama reveals her own brutal Christmas as an orphan, adding new worries. But it's Lulu's deep faith and vibrant hope that keeps her looking forward to each new day and the glorious gift of Christmas. In her touching memoir, Ludmilla Bollow, an award-winning playwright and novelist, recounts the year before her family's toughest Christmas. There's a haunting encounter with freaks at a circus sideshow, the heartbreaking loss of the town's recluse who was committed to finding true love, a disastrous Thanksgiving at Grandma's, and, of course, the long-awaited Christmas! Lulu's spirit of love and joy radiates throughout this emotive recall of family life during hard times.

American history before and after the Wall Street Crash of 1929 Providing a balanced, realistic picture of a time rife with hardships, The Great Depression for Kids brings the era and key concepts to life. Kids learn about the harsh realities that most Americans could not escape, such as massive unemployment, natural disasters, and economic collapse. They also learn that the 1930s were a time when neighbors helped neighbors; sports figures behaved admirably; and an army of young men rebuilt the nation's forests, roads, and parks. Librarians delivered books on horseback, a curly-haired child star charmed moviegoers to "stand up and cheer" in the darkest of days, and a little African American girl became the first of her race to participate in the National Spelling Bee. Beginning with an in-depth look at the 1920s, the book builds readers' background knowledge to help set the stage for the decline of the economy over the next decade. Twenty-one crosscurricular activities help kids learn how to research, buy, and sell stocks; use scientific methods to conduct a survey, re-create Depression glassware; and much more.

Das Leben an der Côte d’Azur der 1920er Jahre ist aufregend. Und so weht stets ein Hauch von "The Great Gatsby" durch die Seiten dieses fabelhaften Romans. Im Herzen der Handlung stehen Gerald Murphy und Sara, in deren Haus Berühmtheiten wie Hemingway, die Fitzgeralds und Picasso verkehren. Auch Gerald ist Maler. Sara und er heiraten gegen den Willen ihrer Eltern. In der Villa America verbringen sie regelmäßig die Sommersaison inmitten ihres Freundeskreises aus exzentrischen Künstlerpersönlichkeiten. Heimlich beginnt Gerald eine Affäre mit dem Piloten Owen. Und im Laufe der Zeit trüben Intrigen und Eifersüchteleien das unbeschwerte Leben in der prächtigen Villa. Hat Saras und Geralds Ehe noch eine Chance? Liza Klaussmann ist ein mitreißender Künstlerroman gelungen, eine fein gezeichnete Milieustudie, in der fast alle Charaktere historisch belegt sind.
