Skipping to School is the true story of a childhood spent in Liverpool before, during, and after World War II. It recalls the fabric of everyday life on the home front and the impact of war on both family life and the local community. At home in Walton, Doris and her friends learned slogans such as "Make Do and Mend," "Dig for Victory," and "Careless Talk Costs Lives." They collected shell caps from bombs and did swaps for better, shinier ones. They made skipping ropes out of the twisted silk cords of German parachutes. They were excited by the arrival of American soldiers stationed on Aintree Racecourse. And, despite the raids, they laughed and had fun.
