Kids at Work: Lewis Hine and the Crusade Against Child Labor Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Photobiography of early twentieth-century photographer and schoolteacher Lewis Hine, using his own work as illustrations. Hines's photographs of children at work were so devastating that they convinced the American people that Congress must pass child labor laws.

Synopsis:

Hine, an investigative reporter for the National Child Labor Committee, took photographs that provided dramatic visual evidence that the U.S. needed laws against child labor. Features Hines' groundbreaking photos, along with text by Newbery Honor Winner Freedman.
