Labor book for kids!!
Wednesday, May 20, 2015
Bedtime reading for those future union organizers/activists!
Manny and the Mango Tree is about a good-natured boy who cannot understand why the owner of his apartment building won't let the children pick the luscious mangoes from the tree in the courtyard that they lovingly watered and fed. With the parents scared the owner will call immigration if they object, Manny and his friends organize a protest march that raises one hullabaloo. Ages 4-8.
