Bundle Description

PLEASE READ: This bundle PDFs of 2 of my literature products. If you purchased my Bread Winner literature unit or The Gardener story activities, this bundle contains the same products. Links to the individual resources above.

The Bread Winner by Whitmore is a historical fiction novel that tells the story of a girl who uses her bread making skills to save the family. The Gardener by Stewart is a picture book that shares the story of a girl who must live with her "grumpy" uncle for a year during the Depression. The two stories work well together to make the experience of living during the Depression more accessible for students.
