Life During the Industrial Revolution by Anita Ganeri


Life During the Industrial Revolution by Anita Ganeri

This title introduces readers to life during the Industrial Revolution from a child's viewpoint. The book introduces general features of the time period, but focuses on what life was like for children, including where they lived, what they learned at school, and where they worked. The text is supported by primary source material (paintings, artefacts, quotes, etc.) that brings the past to life. A final section explains how we use historical evidence to reconstruct the past.
