Victorian Children
5 children discuss life in Victorian times for working-class and well-off children. The dissenter who insists that he might have liked working in a mine is sent to try it out, and another who likes reading is given a taste of the cautionary style used in children’s literature of the time. They conclude that they’re probably better-off now.
