Synopsis

Rationing in World War II by Martin Parsons

Why was there a shortage of familiar foods like bacon, butter and bananas? How did people make their rations go further? What did it mean to 'Dig for Victory'? This book helps children at Key Stage 2 discover the answers to these and other fascinating questions by exploring real-life accounts, looking on the Internet and finding clues about what life was like when food and other supplies were rationed. The detective shows readers how to create their own project about rationing, discover what it meant to 'Dig for Victory' and find out how ration books worked. Packed with fascinating information, The History Detective Investigates series inspires children's curiosity to find out more about the past. A great tool for readers age 8+ or teachers looking for books to support the new curriculum for 2014.
