Rose's Journal: The Story of a Girl in the Great Depression

Marissa Moss, Author, Marissa Moss, Illustrator Harcourt Children's Books $15 (56p) ISBN 978-0-15-202423-9
The latest installment of the Young American Voices series, Rose's Journal: The Story of a Girl in the Great Depression, by Marissa Moss, covers the ""Dirty Thirties."" Set on a Kansas farm, Rose's pink-lined pages contrast with her handwritten account of dust storms and drought so severe that birds, lacking their usual materials, made nests of barbed wire. Captioned sketches and historical b&w photographs lend authenticity to this well-researched account. (Harcourt/Silver Whistle, $15 48p ages 8-12 ISBN 0-15-202423-9; Oct.)
