Rosie the Riveter: Women Working on the Home Front in World War II

Rosie the Riveter: Women Working on the Home Front in World War II Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Illustrated with black-and-white photographs. When America's men went off to war in 1942, millions of women were recruited, through posters and other propaganda, to work at non-traditional jobs. In defense plants, factories, offices, and everywhere else workers were needed, they were--for the first time--well paid and financially independent. But eventually the war ended, and the government and industries that had once persuaded them to work for the war effort now instructed them to return home and take care of their husbands and children. Based on interviews and original research by noted historian Penny Colman, Rosie the Riveter shows young readers how women fought World War II from the home front.

Synopsis:

What child can resist reading about the power of Mother Nature and the tools to stay safe as these kids confront nature head-on? Each student can read their own mystery at their pace when you purchase the Classroom Set which includes 30 paperbacks of The Treacherous Tornado Mystery and receive 30 FREE Masters of Disasters bookmarks and a FREE Carole Marsh Mysteries poster.
