Product Description

These eye-opening but hopeful stories and a poem bring to life some of the situations faced by millions of children working long hours in factories, mines, and quarries, and on city streets and commercial farms in Asia.

This book also includes comprehension questions for each story, brief factual information on conditions in various industries in South Asia, a glossary, and information on charitable organizations that are working to help these children.

Teachers and teacher-librarians: These captivating fictional stories, organized and edited by a former middle-grade teacher and teacher-librarian and told through the voices of Asian child workers in various situations, are the perfect medium to engage your students and help them gain awareness of the situations of many of their peers across the globe. These stories will make a valuable additional resource for any social studies program, especially for students aged 12 to 15.

Also look for the Childhood Regained – Canadian Teachers’ Guide, created to accompany the student editions, with a large variety of related student activities and many more additional resources. $9.95 Can. or FREE with order of 10 books.

“Each well-researched story in Childhood Regained is told from the viewpoint of child workers, starting with the harsh realities of their lives and reaching hope-filled, satisfying conclusions. Young readers will be impacted by the unfamiliar worlds depicted in these transformative stories and may gain a new appreciation for all they have and a desire to help make a difference in the world. Highly recommended.”
