I absolutely love this book! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The story is captivating, and I find myself lost in the text.

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!

This book guides you through teaching literacy through photography to children, for which Ms. Ewald is well known. It is a fantastic resource for someone who wants to really teach the heart and soul of photography, as well as visual literacy - a great introduction to photography but even a seasoned photographer can learn something new from this book. Ms. Ewald takes you through her curriculum step by step as she would teach her students and gives you the tools and tips to pass it on. This is not a technical "how to" photo book, there are plenty of those out there, this book is truly a gem. I have used Ms. Ewald's book as the basis for my own workshops with children and I now have adults asking me to take the course! I can't say enough great things about it...

Very helpful for developing curriculum for kids. Also just a good learning resource in general; teaches everything from how to read a photograph to using photography to teach literacy. Great!

This book has given me so many ideas for helping kids to express themselves by writing. I have already been able to apply this book to my classroom teaching.
I was expecting to get information on how to teach children how to take pictures, I believe it was more theory than practice.
