Ewald's project is wonderful because it lets kids speak for themselves; instead of being passive subjects for the lens, they eagerly harness it to the engine of their imaginations. --Andy Grundberg, The New York Times
"What's striking about Ewald's work is not just the effect she has on her students but the results they achieve together." --Francine Prose, O: The Oprah Magazine
"Young people know joy, sorrow, and loss. By looking at their photographs and talking about making them, they begin to realize that their lives have importance. This book is needed!" --Deborah Willis, author of Reflections in Black
"A treasure of photos taken by the author and her pupils, plus stirring testimonies from children around the globe who faced tragedy through the lens of a camera." --City Limits

But I did not purchase this book for leisure reading. I was searching for a book that is an instructional guide to photographic projects for children. This book is not written in the step-by-step format I was looking for. I wanted fully layed out lesson plans, etc. But I was not dissappointed. All of the information I needed on conducting photo projects with kids is in this book. It is just more of a story format. A VERY enjoyable story!
