    "Re: Growing Up Poor" I read Bert's book and enjoyed it! I learned what kids did growing up in the olden days. There was hard work, but they had fun doing simple things. It gave me some good ideas too!! - Joel Hansen Age 16

    "Oh the Memories of the Happy Days of Innocence" Bert Langeberg's book, Growing Up Poor, brings back memories of the happy days in rural America. Many times in our society the poor people are happier than rich people. Having grown up in a one room house in Arkansas, I can relate to so many aspects of the book. Growing Up Poor reflects on family life before television, electricity and indoor plumbing. Bert whisks us back to that enchanting time when supper was eaten at the dinner table and not on TV trays and when families shared and talked and everyone knew and cared for their neighbors. There are only a few people alive today that remember when the restroom was not down the hall but down the path outside. Bert also shows that success is possible if one is willing to never give up and continue to improve. I especially recommend this book to the younger generation, especially those who take what we have for granted and who never had to endure the sacrifices brought on by... More > World War II. As an added bonus, Bert delves into our Social Security System from his accounting perspective. His insight into the system reveals serious flaws that must be addressed as the time comes to pay the piper. This book deserves a spot in your library.< Less
