HENRY AND THE KITE DRAGON This touching story based on true 1920's events, has two rival groups of children representing Italian and Chinese cultures come face to face. To read more about this book, click here to our blog http://blog.wackadoodlebooks.com/2015/03/book-review-henry-and-the-kite-dragon-bruce-edward-hall/ Recommended for ages 6-10.
Recommended for 8-10. Based on true 1920s events. Everyone knows that kids from Chinatown don't go to the park when the kids from Little Italy are there. They're rough, they're big, and they don't like Chinese kids. That's okay-Henry doesn't like them, either. But what Henry does like are kites. He loves them. But when Tony Guglione and his friends from Little Italy keep throwing rocks and destroying their beautiful creations, Henry and his friends decide enough is enough!
Henry & The Kite Dragon by Bruce Edward Hall. Great book for explaining multicultural customs and tolerance for difference.

My Grandma was a Rosie the Riveter! kk Women played a big role in WW2, the same way that they did in WW1. This picture shows how women did the jobs that men left behind in order to support their families at the home front and their families fighting in the war. http://younghistoryofamerica.blogspot.ca/
"Rosie the Riveter" got the name in 1943 when there was a huge effort to get American women into factory jobs during WWII that had previously been men's jobs before the war. Porpganda often depicted women working with make-up on to show that the women war workers were still feminine even though they now worked in "masculine" jobs.

British Poster Promoting the Feeding of Kitchen Scraps to Backyard Chickens
🍓SAVE KITCHEN SCRAPS TO FEED THE HENS🍓 During World War II, Britain wanted all men and women to help win the war. Like the armed services, the people at home had to do their bit too! The government used posters, leaflets, film and radio broadcasts to get its message over to the public. There was no television or internet in those days.
Fun sign for chicken coop.
