    Counting on Grace

    This is a sweet/sad story of a girk who loves to read and write but is forced to leave school so she can work in a factory to pay for her family's well being. She is left handed and finds it hard to do the work. The only thing she loves is the sundays spent with her bet friend Arthur and her teacher, who hates what the factory is doing to her favorite students. Grace thinks there is no hope...until a man comes to the factory, undercover, and determined to stop these kids from working(its against the law). This story is a wonderful book and an eyeopener to the hardship of child labor. 10 STARS!!!!!!!!!

    I read this piece of historical fiction for my daughter’s

    I read this piece of historical fiction for my daughter’s book club and thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s sad to think that families had to take young children out of school so that they could work to help keep a roof over their head and food on the table. Although not touched on in the book, the truth of the matter is that it still happens today in some areas of the country.
