Throwback Thursday

I love this scrapbook that Scholastic created for my character, Piper, in The Fences Between Us, the title that kicked off the relaunch of the Dear America series. Young readers can try their hands at 40s wartime vocabulary, food and fashion. The site also has great images from WWII to help kids understand rationing and other homefront experiences.

Check it out!


  1. I liked that book so much! I just visited the scrapbook, and it's such a cool idea! Thanks for sharing it. Young people will love to go there.

  2. The scrapbook is terrific. I especially like the paper dolls. That is a trip down Memory Lane! I haven't read your book yet, but I will soon. Thanks for sharing this.

  3. Kirby, Thanks so much for sharing the scrapbook! The Fences Between Us is one of my favorite books to share with my students and they'll love the scrapbook.
