Each year, the first Monday in September marks the celebration of Labor Day. This special holiday has been around since the 19th century, when the labor movement pushed for better workers' rights. Labor Day is also a way to honor and thank all the hard work that the American people put into their jobs every day. This book explores the history of the holiday and the different ways families celebrate Labor Day. Accessible text and closely correlating photographs make this book perfect for young readers. A picture glossary helps readers expand their vocabulary.
