A story of a young girl and what her childhood was like living in a town with a steel mill. The illustrations in the book start out muted and the colors dull and without life.As the author describes the town and the sights she saw as she was growing up in the illustrations mirror what she is describing. At the end of the book the illustration becomes clear as she describes the new look of her mill town that is very different that how she grew up. ( )

Contains great illustrations. The pictures tell the story. Tells the story of a girl who grew up beside the steel mills.
Instructional Use:
This book would make a good example for students to see how pictures can tell a story even when words aren't attached to them. ( )

This is a story contains great illustrations. The illustrator used a more realistic style of painting. The picture can also explain the text. ( )
