Limited Time Offer – Free eBook of Jingo Fever

Jingo Fever, by Stephanie LowdenFor a limited time, Crickhollow Books is offering teachers & librarians a free eBook copy of Jingo Fever, a middle-grade historical novel set in the summer of 1918 in a small town in northern Wisconsin during World War I.

The 128-page novel for young readers addresses issues of bullying, peer pressure, anti-ethnic bigotry, over-zealous patriotism, and the importance of standing up for what’s right.

The story focuses on Adelle Klein, a young girl from Milwaukee, who experiences anti-German sentiment (from ethnic slurs to uncomfortable patriotic fervor), which escalates to a moment of mob behavior with threats of violence against her uncle (thwarted by Adelle’s courage).

Jingo Fever offers “rich material for deep classroom discussions” as one elementary teacher said.

Here a link for more information on Jingo Fever. Published by Crickhollow Books in 2011, and a Finalist for a Book of the Year Award (juvenile fiction), the title is available in softcover and eBook editions.
