    1 star 110 hearts This must be the worst Dear Canada book there is Sally is weird and ungirlish her family is nasty and there are a couple scenes set in a bar with some bad comments I very much disliked this book and I don’t intend to pick up another book by the author—at least not without very good recommendation

Not a Nickel to Spare The Great Depression Diary of Sally Cohen Dear Canada

Coping with being poor during the Depression is hard enough but Sally also has to deal with the anti Jewish feelings. This was truly realistic I loved that the character of Sally was so accurately immature in that she is definitely eleven years old with age appropriate thoughts and opinions I also liked that this took place not in a traditional kind of diary but a scribbler

I ve read a few of the Dear Canada books but this is without a doubt my favourite Sally Cohen s diary really touched me and pulled at the heart strings Being from Toronto I really liked reading about places I knew but what really got me was the racist attitudes the Torontonians had in the 1930s I ve always been proud to be Canadian in this multi cultured city and I had never imagined that Canadians were so racist and some even supported Hitler in those days Then to read that Canada had pretty much closed their doors to Jews fleeing the Nazis made me so angry and upset In all honesty this book made me change the way I thought of my country The rose tinted glasses have been taken off I m so glad I ve read this book It was a little snap shot of life for a young Jewish girl living in Toronto during the depression It opened my eyes and made me appreciate the time I m living in now where racism and intolerance to religious beliefs are not acceptable in society I think that s the whole point to these little books Little girls reading these can look at what they have and what world they live in and be a little grateful Of all the books in the series I ve read so far this book has been the most touching and the message is spoken loud and clear
