Publisher Description:

Flappers, flag-pole sitting, and the Ford Model T--these are just a few of the things that instantly conjure up a unique era--the Roaring Twenties.

It was the bees' knees, the cat's meow. If you're not familiar with 1920s slang, all the more reason to read this fascinating look at that wild, exciting decade. It began on the heels of one tragedy--the flu pandemic of 1918--and ended with another: the start of the Great Depression. But in between there were plenty of good times--the Model T cars that Henry Ford made were cheap enough for the masses, the new sound of jazz heated up speakeasies and nightclubs during the time of Prohibition. Women, recently given the right to vote, cut their long hair into bobs, wore short skirts and makeup, and danced the Charleston (sometimes in marathons that lasted days). Michele Mortlock hits all the highlights of this heady age that still feels modern even a hundred years later.

Category Description for What Was ___? History:

Learning history is so much more than dry boring facts regurgitated to fill in worksheets and quizzes. Rather, learning history should be about understanding the people and events of people - people who are just like us, people who have experienced events that changed their life as they knew it.

Covering a variety of American history events that have changed our world, this well-written series will engage children and help them understand the impact of the events that occurred during each time period. Black and white illustrations, maps, and sixteen pages of authentic photos bring a real-life experience to our children. Timelines and a bibliography are also included to enhance learning. These would make wonderful read-aloud or engage children in self-reading. An appealing supplement to any history program or to keep learning fresh through the summer. PB. 106 pgs. ~Deanne
