Fire! The Beginnings of the Labor Movement - Barbara Diamond Goldin
This is a small book for kids, part of the "Once Upon America" series of historical books, which take a historical story/concept and make it relatable for young readers. I enjoyed this book, as short as it was it was a good introduction to the need for the labor movement and the tragic Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire at the beginning of the 20th Century and I am sure I would have enjoyed the book if I had read it when I was young.
