The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based booklist available as an online-only Bulletin feature. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

Another May Day Meaning:  A Child Labor Dozen

--selected by Deborah Stevenson, Editor

May Day is Labor Day in many countries, based on historic events right here in Illinois.  We're therefore going to abjure the usual flowers in favor of a more serious dozen, which covers child labor in the past and present, abroad and at home, and in fiction and nonfiction.  Kids whose greatest obligation is taking out the garbage will find much to consider here.
