Worms Don’t Work for Wages
Julia Epifania Basnage
This playful take on an alphabet book is a simple, yet compelling, digestible, yet thorough, introduction to interrogating capitalism. We love how Worms Don't Work for Wages pushes against the historical tendency in western children's literature to map colonizer norms onto personified animals: from Curious George to Babar. Continuously reminding readers, of all ages, that animals do not, in fact, rely on the same capitalistic social structures.
