I've always been curious about the Great Depression that took place in America primarily during the 1930's. This book examines the story behind the most famous photograph of the Great Depression.

I happily began this book this week.

I was somewhat disappointed. The book wavered between being a book targeting elementary readers and a book targeting junior high readers. I wish it had stuck to one or the other. And I wish there had been just a little more research into the life of this woman. Perhaps I was really hoping to read a grownup version of this book.
