Format: Paperback
I recieved this book as a gift and enjoyed it. When we were growing up preserves the memories of those who will be lost in time if not recorded. I found the stories funny, sad, and fascinating. It is a shame to lose a generation without preserving part of the flavor of thier lives. This author captures the wonders of times gone by and records it for future generations. The illustrations are fantastic and the writing crisp and entertaining. I believe it is a must read for the younger students of history. It bridges the gap in understanding between the generations and make history come alive. I highly recommend it!

By Patsy on September 4, 2011
Format: Paperback
I was given this book by a friend who met the Author. I was thrilled to read the excerpts from the Author on growing up in Winnipeg. I also grew up in Winnipeg and Pat Pattan brought to life my "growing-up" experiences, unique to that era and that country and city.

I went on to discover the richness of others' experiences as the pages came to life in their stories.
I found this book to be delightful, well-written, warm, and informative.

Although all of the pieces were from varios parts of the country and the world, I could relate to something in each one . The commonality of the human experience was obvious and in many ways, comforting.
I would recommend this book to anyone.

I found Pat Pattan's book interesting and fun to read! It was well written and the various stories of childhoods lived in different cities and countries brought back my own memories. It was very interesting to read of what others experienced as they were growing up and comparing their experiences to my own.

I found that many of my experiences were similar to the author's, though we were raised in quite different areas. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book!

Thanks Pat!

This book is extremely interesting and has some great stories in it. The illustrations add a great deal to the stories as well. As a teacher, this is a great resource to bring into the classroom when teaching about the Great Depression and WWII.
