Booklist - Daniel Kraus

"This quick entry in the Comparing Past and Present series uses historical and modern photographs to turn each two-page spread into a visual comparison of the bad ol’ days and the glimmering futuristic present. . . .the pictures alone are enough to surprise young readers about the relative privilege of modern conveniences. Sepia-toned shots of weary women cooking outdoors, using wood-burning ovens, pumping well water, and so forth are contrasted with bright shots of (mostly) women beaming within their efficient, cheery kitchens. An eye-opener, for sure." - Booklist
