Because the legacy of the textile mills and the child labor that ran them is an important part of American history, it is also an important part of the social studies curriculum. This book is a direct hit on that part of the curriculum but far from being a depressing recitation of facts it is instead an inspirational episode in the life of a young girl who made a big difference in an industry, and world, run by men. Little Margaret Knight began her lifelong career as an inventor with a safety arm for the textile loom which prevented one of the most common causes of injury and death to loom workers. This is a picture book story about Margaret and her invention.
