Counting On Grace
The Image above is of a little girl named Addie. She is the inspiration behind Elizabeth Winthrop's book Counting On Grace. The book tells the story of children working in a factory in New England before Child Labor Laws were enforced. Ms. Winthrop has agreed to talk with the Literature Circle group currently reading her book and I can't wait! You can see other photographs taken of unfair child labor practices by searching for images by Lewis Hine, a photographer who logged more than 50,000 miles taking pictures of children working in the United States.
