Gr. 3-5. When Kit receives a refurbished winter coat, she gives her old one to a child at a nearby soup kitchen. Back at home, she takes on the responsibility of caring for her elderly, disagreeable uncle, who has moved in while recovering from a fall. Required to take dictation about letters disapproving of unemployed "drifters," Kit writes her own letter to the editor of the local newspaper, asking for support of poorly clothed children sheltered at the soup kitchen. Though Kit and her uncle's points of view are quite different, each individual earns the other's grudging respect. Colorful paintings, from full-page pictures to tiny vignettes, brighten the pages. An eight-page section of history, illustrated mainly with photos, is appended. A fitting addition to the appealing stories about Kit, the Depression-era heroine in the American Girls series.
