Wordcandy for hard times

Slate has a great slide show up about kids' books set during tough financial times. They skipped a lot of my favorites (Mama's Bank Account, about an immigrant Norwegian family in San Francisco in the early twentieth century, Betty Smith's A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, and Noel Streatfeild's Ballet Shoes), but they did include some great titles--everything from Margaret Sidney's Five Little Peppers and How They Grew to Beverly Cleary's Ramona and her Father.
