Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dawna Lisa Buchanan
This nonfiction, easy to read text is divided into six chapters and includes rich resources for additional research for newly independent readers. The lives of children in the Victorian age are described in terms of their health, activities, jobs and surroundings. The authors explore the world of Charles Dickens through the eyes of children (both rich and poor) and what it would have been like to live at that time. Photographs and drawings show children working in factories, scavenging for food, playing on the streets, and note the kinds of books, toys, and education that would have been available to them. The book tells a little about Dickens' own life in the context of the age—the poverty of his family, his good fortune in being sent to school, and the books he wrote that are still popular today. The changes that occurred during that time period are also described—technology, education, medicine and laws that affected the quality of life for these children. Beautifully organized, this book would be an asset in any classroom or school library, and offers terrific materials for further study—books, museums, movies and websites can be found at the back of the book, along with an index.
