Title

Be Kind to the Needy

Description

After about 1820, children’s picture books started to come in all shapes and sizes as publishers experimented with formats that would both appeal to young readers and be cost effective to produce. The American Sunday-School Union offered a moralistic plate book made up of text paired with ten large, hand-colored lithographed images bound together. This variety was a major change from the eighteenth century and prepared consumers to expect a wide range of published material for children, just as McLoughlin Brothers came onto the scene in the 1850s.
