I love portraits of children, which always evoke a strong feeling of family and nostalgia in me. As a result, I had to like this book in spite of its dry prose because of its abundance of 19th-and-early-20th-century portraits of children. I learned from the way it outlined the changing conceptions of childhood and family during the Gilded Age, but without the captivating pictures, the book would be dull. Isn't that the point?
