  1. Which bestdescribes the overall tone of the novel The Secret Garden?




2 points  


  1. Read the passage from "A Portrait of Courage and Vision":

    After 1918, Hine photographed people in better work situations. He wanted to show the value of human labor as machines were becoming more common. He also used photographs to show the step-by-step process of the building of the Empire State Building in New York City. In his later years, however, there was less demand for his work, and he died in poverty.

    Freedman puts together words and photographs to deliver a strong story. The main features of Hine’s life are presented briefly, but the focus of the book is on Hine’s work to end child labor. I was impressed by many of the little stories Freedman uses to tell about child labor. The pictures show what the words cannot. It’s hard to believe that children could be put into such dangerous situations! The book has a good bibliography for learning more about Hine and photography. It also has a clear index for finding information within the book.

    Which elements of a book review are in this passage, and in what order?

    summary, opinion, recommendation

    introduction, opinion, summary

    summary, recommendation
