Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0979581818, Paperback)

A school assignment to look for an old penny opens up a world of adventure and living history for a group of students. Join them as they search for old pennies, hold them in their hands and wonder: Who held them when they were new? What was this country like? With each penny found, more history comes alive. The pennies lead back to the wave of immigration in the early 1900s, through the Influenza epidemic and The Great War, on to the Harlem Renaissance, the Depression and World War II. All this is seen through the eyes of young people the same age as the students. The powerful ending demonstrates how a simple penny can tie people together and carry a strong message of hope and the American spirit. The book includes discussion questions intended to stimulate thought-provoking conversation and creativity. The book is suited for the home, classroom, library or homeschool bookshelf.
The book is also available in hardcover (ISBN 978-0-9795818-0-9)
