The 1920s Decade in Photos

The Roaring Twenties

Series: Amazing Decades in Photos

By Jim Corrigan

Heavily illustrated with photos, this book shows how in the 1920s America celebrated like never before. World War I was finally over and Americans eagerly looked ahead. Cities grew as the economy boomed. It was the era of Prohibition, when alcohol was illegal, but people drank liquor and listened to jazz music in secret nightclubs. Bold young women called “flappers” led a culture of revelry. It was a time for heroes and villains. Pilot Charles “Lucky Lindy” Lindbergh winged his way across the Atlantic. Meanwhile, Al Capone and his gang of mobsters ruled the streets of Chicago. As the decade ended, the world faced the Great Depression. Dictators such as Adolf Hitler began seizing power. Read about the The Roaring Twenties, a decade unlike any other.

". . . a good classroom set in a social studies classroom as well as in a reading teacher’s room."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, March 2010

"Characterizing a decade in one slim book involves making choices--Corrigan has done quite well at selecting nineteen significant events or developments for each decade since 1900 . . . The author’s style is brisk, the illustrations often fascinating; the abundance of period photos, graphics, and popular art can help promote visual literacy."

Children's Literature

"The mainly color photographs and illustrations drive the easy-to-read narrative . . . simple sentence structure works well for older students needing hi-lo resources."

Library Media Connection, March/April 2010

". . . each 64-page book in this outstanding series features an informed and informative accompanying text . . . strongly recommended for both school and community library collections."

Children's Bookwatch, January 2010

The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2010
