This book is about how women worked in the factories during the war. The men were overseas fighting so women took over their roles and made many changes at home, like vegetable gardens. This book talks about that period. In the back it has a timeline. It also explains that women who worked in factories are called “Rosies”.
I liked that this book was about women can do things that men can too. I liked learning about the history. I really liked the illustrations.
I think teachers should this in their classrooms and libraries so kids can learn about this.
I got this book as part of a Kickstarter but you can get it online -> https://www.wsupress.wayne.edu/books/detail/rosie-detroit-herstory.
