Diana's White House Garden

Submitted by Ms. Sue!
Diana’s White House Garden by Elisa Carbone and illustrated by Jen Hill. Diana who is ten years old lives in the “white house.” Her dad Harry Hopkins was the president’s chief adviser in 1943. She lived there with lots of other people that worked there including President Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor. President Roosevelt wanted every citizen to help with the war effort. When he asked that everyone plant a garden to grow food for our soldiers, Diana wanted to help too. The gardens were called “Victory Gardens.” Diana worked with George the grounds keeper to turn the soil, fertilize, and plant the seeds. She went every day before and after school to tend the garden. When the plants were almost grown reporters came to see it. They asked Diana “how does it feel to inspire the whole country and help with the war effort?” “It feels very good,” she said. An article went out a few days later and the headline read “Diana Farms Her White House Plot”. It explained how the president’s plan was working and how she was an important part!

On every page of these colorful board books is a new thing to wear on your head. With the Book-O-Beards you can sport facial hair like a lumberjack's bushy beard, or a police officer's impressive mustache. With the Book-O-Teeth you can try out new chompers, like a vampire's fangs, or beaver's dam building teeth. With the Book-O-Hats you can try on the headgear of several occupations, like a firefighter's helmet, or a construction worker's bright orange hard hat. And with the Book-O-Masks you can disguise yourself as a superhero or a ninja! I realize the best way to explain how awesome these books are is to just show you some action pics, so here you go:
