Have you been fielding tough questions from your kids about the economic crisis? Whether they've heard about it on the news or picked up on it from your conversations, chances are they're aware that something's going on and they may be worried. Slate has compiled a slideshow of children's books suitable for hard economic times: When times are tough, cue the stories about times that were even tougher.

Many of their picks will be familiar to readers who grew up in the '70s. One of our favorites, Ramona and her Father by Beverly Cleary, in which Ramona's dad loses his job, made the cut. Can you add to Slate's list?
