This title was introduced in the story when Vonnegut promises Mary O’Hare that he will not write a book that glorifies war and he will call it “The Children Crusade”.

Another reason why Vonnegut portrayed the soldiers as children is to emphasize the fact that wars are fought by children,young men, who are incapable of comprehending the cause of the war. Therefore Vonnegut attempts to convey his message that these "children" soldiers are being exploited by sadistic leaders. Vonnegut has chosen the word "children" as children have no duty in the war thus the war should not be occurring and reoccurring.

Work is required to earn the money to provide the necessities of life, but this duty should never be given to children. In her speech, Florence Kelley uses logos, pathos, and a shift to voting rights to build her argument of why child labor laws need to be enforced nationwide.

This is effective because of the shockingly large number of children working absurd and miserable hours.
She knows the trouble she will get in with her teacher Miss Crocker and Mama when she stands up for Little Man. Cassie says on page 27 “Miz Crocker,” I said, I don’t want my book neither.” She says this because in the front cover of their books it has a chart that shows who has owned it and the condition it is in. It says nigra, very poor condition, and that is why Little Man doesn’t want his because he thinks it is not fair that they get the old worn out ones, and the white students get the brand new ones. This is why Cassie understands that Little Man doesn’t want his book, and how she stands up for him. She shows courage by this

If our generation of adults are un-educated who knows what could happen. If you don't have any education you cannot have a good job which means just more people in slavery and that doesn't solve anything. An example of this is in the article (10 Horrifying Examples Of Modern-Day Child Slavery by Kristance Harlow) where children are sent to a "school" by their parents. There they beg for money on streets and at the end of the day they give the marabouts (masters) all the money they made and if it isn't enough, the penalties are harsh, from being chained in total isolation to violent beatings. These children never have a chance to succeed so later in life if they survive they will most likely be in
