Book Review #245
Kids At Work: Lewis Hine and the Crusade Against Child Labor by Russell Freedman, photographs by Lewis Hine
Rating: four stars (out of four)

The photographs in this book were absolutely amazing.  The startling clarity and richness of the faces were amazing.  I couldn't believe that these photographs were taken almost a hundred years ago.  A part of history that is not very well known, I liked how the author incorporated the photographs and Lewis Hine's life, giving me a brief look into the past.  I immensely enjoyed this book, it was educational, had beautiful photographs and I learned more about something that I didn't know much about.  I'd definitely recommend this book.
