    Kids On Strike

    The title of the book is Kids on Strike. The author of the book is Susan Campbell Bartoletti. The book is mainly about kids working in the mills. They try to organize a strike because of the harsh conditions, they also do not get paid enough. The author sends the message accross perfectly. She uses great detail to engage the reader with facts from the time period. I liked how the kids had the courage to organize a strike union. i don't know why some more adults didn't stand up for the cause. You would enjoy this book if you like history, and if you like it when the little people stand up for what they know is right.

    Kids On Strike

    In the beginning of this book you learn about the work conditions and jobs of the workers in the mills during the 1800's. Then Susan Bartoletti starts talking about the different strikes and petitions set forth by the workers. Finally she talks about the effect all this had on slavery. This book isn't a story really it's an organized recitation of facts in a series. It does make you want to know what happens next more out of to finish it, rather than because you are worried or excited. I liked the pictures of the time period-not only could you imagine what was going on, but you could see how close my imagination was to what it really looked like. Nothing in this book really confused me, because we had just finished learning about the industrial revolution in history and we were reading Lyddie,another book on the mill life, in class. My only question was why did people treat there workers terribly if they were getting a profit out of them. I think that someone who might enjoy this book would be someone who enjoys American history. I also think that kids now-a-days would come to see how much harder it was back then and stop taking their life for granted. Overall this was a good book and some people might enjoy it.
