So my kid asked me why we celebrate Labor Day. I asked her what she knew about it and she mentioned her teacher saying something to her about child labor. I sort of just pulled some stuff out about how people fought for the right to have weekends and holidays, and for kids not to work, but today was the first time I actually thought about it, and did some research about it.

Anyway, I started wondering if there were any kids' books I could get/borrow from the library, and came across this list: Children's books about labor and organizing.

More:

Tablet mag recs: focus on Jewish contributions to the labor movement.

Mighty Girl recs: 20 books about women and the labor movement.

Since let's be honest, it's not going to be on her curriculum.
