I received a copy of “Full of Beans” ($16.99 value) in exchange for this promotion. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.”
This Random House Book for Young Readers (ages 8-12, grades 3-7) captures the Great Depression in Key West, Florida. Now most people who have been to Key West, Florida know it’s touristy and tropical and fun, etc., but….it wasn’t always that way. Follow Beans (a kid, but just not any kid) along in this story line about the scarcity of jobs, money, and how everyone was out for themselves during this era when the town went bankrupt. Times were tough, families were pushed to the limits to provide for their families. Can Beans help his family and town to get back on their feet?
Enjoy this historical fiction as it provides some great events to ponder. Full of Beans can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and anywhere books are sold.
