Join us at WORD Jersey City for an interactive storytime with Alexandra Davis, author of Lumber Jills: The Unsung Heroines of World War II. There'll be tree cookies, costumes, a Timber Corps workout, and coloring! 

ABOUT THE BOOK

In World War II, Great Britain needed lumber to make planes, ships, and even newspapers—but there weren’t enough men to cut down the trees. Enter the fearless Lumber Jills! These young women may not have had much woodcutting experience, but they each had two hands willing to work and one stout heart, and they came together to do their part. Discover this lyrical story of home front heroism and female friendship.
