Using Philadelphia as a case study, A Mother's Job explores the history of day care from the perspective of families who used it, tracing day care's transformation from a charity for poor single mothers in the early twentieth century to a legitimate and culturally accepted social need for ordinary families and a potential responsibility of government by the 1950s.
