World War II for Kids

Now more than ever, kids want to know about our country's great struggles during World War II. This book is packed with information that kids will find fascinating, from Hitler's rise to power in 1933 to the surrender of the Japanese in 1945. Much more than an ordinary history book, it is filled with excerpts from actual wartime letters written to and by American and German troops, personal anecdotes from people who lived through the war in the United States, Germany, Britain, Russia, Hungary, and Japan, and gripping stories from Holocaust survivors - all add a humanizing global perspecitve to the war.

There are 21 activities showing children how it felt to live through this monumental period in history.
* Play a rationing game or try the butter extender recipe to understand the everyday sacrifices of rationing goods.
* Try their hand at military strategy in coastal defence, break a military code, and play the latitude-longitude tracking game.
* Grow a victory garden and stage an adventure radio program to appreciate the hardships and joys experienced on the home front.
* Interview a veteran to help preserve the memories of one of our country's greatest generations.
