Yes, of course. Often wartime ephemera, such as less common pamphlets and so on, are of some value as most copies seem to have been thrown away. (Obviously, things are literally everyone had, such as ration books, are usually of no great value). Original copies of some books dealing with matters that were relevant at the time may be of value, for example, a copy of Guilty Men by "Cato", published by Victor Gollancz in July 1940. It has been reprinted, but copies of the reprint are not cheap. If you have books and pamphlets from World War 2, keep them and get advice, but don't be disappointed if they don't turn out to be very valuable.

They have a very small value as millions of them were issued. Every person in the US had one. I've seen them go for about $5 a book in excellent condition.

Not much. The reason for this is that even though they're old, they're extremely common. Everyone had them during the war.

Why did the government issue ration books during World War 2?

the British and US governments both issued ration books during WWII. they did this in Britain because Britain largely imported much of the "the necessities"(including but not limited to: sugar, tea, oil, wood, and produce). After WWII began, the Germans diseverly cut the amount of supplies reaching Britain by attacking the ships that carried them. In order to make sure that there was enough to go around, the British Government issued ration books(for more in fo about ration books in Britain, see what were ration books) in the US, ration books were issued so that the government could provide enough supplies to its soldiers. It was all to support the war effort.
