Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Renowned photo-essayist Freedman has written two books, Kids at Work and Immigrant Kids, that speak to children through engaging text and pictures. Immigrant Kids captures images of newly arrived children at work, play and learning. Children can extend their appreciation of these books by collecting photographs of their peers to document their own lives at school. These photo-journals can be combined with items representing contemporary lifestyles e.g. a compact disc, videocassette, computer chip to create a time capsule that could be stored for future generations attending the same school.
