Augusta Canal Children’s Books

The project is to publish a children’s picture book about the Augusta Canal, providing a curriculum enhanced tool that can be used for pre- and/or post- assessments. The book will cover the history, science, natural environment, and the current community involvement. Children will learn the role the Augusta Canal played in the development of their community and the effects child labor played on Augusta’s industrialization. We are contracting a local artist, publishing, and print company to work with us on this project.
