An engaging children’s story about a canary, and a brief history of how the birds and pit ponies were used in the coal mines until recent times.
This story is gently told and introduces young readers to the virtual slavery of women and children in coal mines, before being replaced by pit ponies. It opens the door for discussion and learning, without being confrontational.
