Take note, you weak, whiney whisps and loose, lazy lumps

Mike sent me a link to a post by Dave of Iowahawk about a 1942 pamphlet titled My Book to Help America. This book for children was written shortly after the bombing of Pearl Harbor by author Munro Leaf. Dave scanned the book and posted it in its entirety.

Leaf wrote the book for kids about how they could help with the war effort of the time, but I like some of the advice for today's youth, too. For example: "Let's obey cheerfully, do it with a smile and not be a gloomy sour-face."

You hear that, Emily and Thomas?!

It's good advice for kids of any age. In fact, I think I'll take it myself.
