“Ansel never sat still. When he was outside he had fun and took many pictures. He left school when he was 13-years-old. He made a journal of all of his pictures.

“Ansel met his wife in Virginia and built a studio. Ansel’s pictures became famous. My favorite part was where the illustrator made one picture into two pages.

“I recommend this book to my friend Chase because she loves to take pictures. One time she wouldn’t stop. She loves to take pictures of nature and Ansel loved taking nature pictures too! They have something in common.

This is the story of a boy named Ansel who is always antsy. One day Ansel got a book from his aunt and pictures from Yosemite Valley. He begged his parents to take him there and they did.

During the trip, his parents gave him a camera. With the camera he took lots of pictures that made him famous. He opened up a photography studio. When Ansel was little he studied piano, French, Greek and algebra.

I would recommend this book to my friend Nick’s mom. Overall this was a good book. One of my favorite parts was when they showed the pictures.
