The History dept. at my school hosted an excellent assembly about Child Labor: Then and Now this past week.  The presenters passed out booklets called Faces of Child Labor.  They are about  20 pages of really heart-wrenching photographs from 18th c. America and modern day Third World countries. The book is magazine-sized and is published by the Pennsylvania Center of the Study of Labor Relations. I got some extras that I'd like to send as a freebie w/ an order from my shelf. I'd recommend them for mature middle school students or high school students since some of the pictures are unsettling.

Please PM me if you're interested.
