Katherine Paterson (1991)

historical fiction, Lowell Massachusetts factory girls; hard work, independence, support and care for family… labor issues, value of reading/education, society/class differences… farm/work life for children in 1800’s


The Amazing Bone William Steig (1976) Caldecot Honor

ok, it's a fairy tale; but why a bone?
