This is a great picture book biography about young Clara Lemlich who fought the working conditions and led the largest walkout of women workers in US history.
I loved the story. It brings an important issue to a level that young children can understand without taking away the seriousness of it. It is also a story of a person we don't read about often, but who made a huge impact on our world.
I have been trying hard to figure out how to make our upcoming government unit more accessible to my 4th graders. Such big concepts. Books like this seem to be perfect in helping kids understand democracy, the constitution and how laws are made/change/etc.
Looking forward to sharing this one with kids.
