For Molly, life in 1944 was full of challenges. The world was at war, which kept her father far away caring for wounded soldiers and made her friend Emily leave her home in England to escape the war. These were serious and difficult times for everyone, but Molly and her friends still had fun together playing, roller-skating, and going to the movies. While soldiers were fighting in World War Two, Americans at home were cheering them toward victory. Try two of Molly’s patriotic crafts that are all about supporting the U.S.A.!
