Diana’s White House Garden
In 1943, a little girl named Diana lived in the White House, with her father, who worked for President Roosevelt. It is during World War II and Diana wants to help do her part. She tries to make important signs, but signs that read “Quarantine” are not good around the White House. When President Roosevelt mentions that he wants everyone to plants gardens so they can grow their own food and send food to the soldiers. Diana wants to grow a garden, on the White House Lawn. Diana’s White House Garden becomes inspiration for the rest of the country to plant their own gardens.
I really liked Diana’s White House Garden because it is based on a real girl, Diana Hopkins. I like reading stories about real people and what they have done in their lives. I think it was really neat that Diana stepped up to take care of the garden at the White House. I like the idea of having a garden in every backyard, vacant lot and park. I wish everyone still did this. We have a garden in our backyard and it takes a lot of work and patience to grow your own food.
