The Worst Children’s Jobs in History
By Tony Robinson
The next time your children complain about having to help with the dishes or mow the lawn, put this book in front of them.
The Worst Children’s Jobs in History takes you back to the days when being a kid was no excuse for getting out of hard labor. This British book, nearly all of which will strike a chord with youngsters around the world, tells the stories of all the children whose work fed the nation, kept trains running, and put clothes on everyone’s backs over the last few hundred years of Britain’s history. Their jobs ranged from chimney sweep to cesspool cleaner, from tooth-donor(!) to turnip-picker, from manure-shoveler to matchbox maker -- and much more. This book will tell you things you probably didn’t want to know about the back-breaking realities of being a child in the past. 104 pages paperback
