Thimble Summer 1939 Medal Winner ***

Garnet finds a silver thimble right before the rains come and save her father's crops. She decides the thimble is lucky and has all sorts of adventures for the rest of the summer living on a farm in the Midwest.

This book would be great to read chapter by chapter to classroom or children at night. The author does a great job describing farm life in the 1930's. She takes great care to talk about the price of things and how a 50 cent piece can make a child feel rich. So much of the life described in this book is now lost to our modern youth. This book would really teach children what life used to be like for their great grandparents when they were growing up.
