Product Details


Photojournalist Matthews has compiled many of her recent photos, sensitively shedding light on the effects of children growing up with war. … The stories of disruption, stress, pain, and misery brought about by war are clear and strong. The photographs are powerful and well captioned. Realistic and somber, they give readers an illustration of the true face of war without verging on graphic or gruesome. … An important work that many should see.
—School Library Journal

Through honest photographs and prose Matthews captures what it is like to be a child of war, as well as a photojournalist working in such ravaged countries. … The text … provides a valuable and unusual behind-the-camera perspective. An effective appeal to child readers as the ones who can stop the continuum of violence.
—Kirkus Reviews

Valuable end matter includes succinct overviews of “The Main Conflicts” in ten countries, websites of NGOs active in these areas, a glossary, a map noting world conflict zones, and an index. … The issues raised here will help readers view the news with empathy and the documentary photographer’s job with respect.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
