CHILDREN OF THE HARVEST with illustrations by Janet Smalley.

New York, [NY]: Friendship Press, (1940). First edition. 8vo. 95pp. Rust brown cloth, with illustration of children gathering beans on front cover. Corners worn, covers slightly soiled. Birthday inscription. Signed by the author, and dated March, 1940. On the verso of the title page, it states: "Plans and procedures for using Children of the Harvest will be found in 'A Primary Teacher's Guide on Migrants,' by Armilda B. Keiser." Gertrude Warner, in her introduction to the book, directed to her young readers, asks them to think about how food their family buys gets onto their pantry shelf: "When you eat these things next time, just stop a minute and think about the people who picked them." She suggests it might be children just about their age and that if they would like to do something to thank those children they can write to the Council of Women for Home Missions in New York City for instructions on how to send thank-you presents to the children who work in the fields.
