My Daddy Was a Soldier
A young girl's father goes to war and she copes with the stress of him being gone. Children's literature is one of the most prominent ways that the World War II victory garden is remembered in the post-World War II era. It provides a safe way for authors to introduce children to the Second World War. In addition, it carries on the memory of the victory garden, which emphasizes the important ideological role that gardens played on the American home front.
