      A beautiful collection of photographs:) I adore it.

    2. Jan Polep says:

      I've never met a photo album I didn't like, but the greatest have captions and include some pre-1900 pictures. Rose Kennedy's album fills the bill. Here's a peek at history, fashion, family life, letters, and more. 1878-1946. The sad note is that, as with your own family albums, you know enough family history to look at many of the smiling faces and say, "What if"

    3. Connie D says:

      Great Kennedy photos, good basic history of the family, nice letter excerpts, etc. considering the great photos, the writing (and even letters) seem somewhat long-winded and dry.

    4. Robin says:

      Eh, I was bored through most of this book. The Kennedy's fascinate me, especially JFK. I was interested in reading about Rose Kennedy as she was the matriarch of such an interesting and notorious clan. I always thought that she was this strong, amazing Christian woman who had so much heartache to endure. Well, yes she did have a lot of heartache and I guess for the most part she was a strong woman to have been able to endure so much loss. BUT, after reading this book, I have a completely differe [...]

      Rose Kennedy's Family Album is a "must have" for any Kennedy aficionado. I used to feel guilty about my fascination with this complex family until so much of America became hooked on "reality t.v." such as The Kardashians. I indulge my curiosity without any remnants of guilt now. I've lost count of exactly how many Kennedy biographies I've read but it's between 13-15. Some of these photographs I've seen before but probably about 75-80% of them I haven't. There is also a nice running narrative an [...]

    6. False says:

      Many unique photos, but the entire production under the control of the Kennedy clan, so you aren't going to see what they don't want you to see. I was always amazed at the distant mother parenting style of Rose Kennedy. "She" kept herself dressed in French couture, while her daughters and sons were slapped into identical outfits (to save time, money and thought, I suppose.) One picture I had never seen was a young JFK on his graduation day from Harvard, looking faintly rumpled and wearing saddle [...]

    7. Kristina Hoerner says:

      I am reading a new bio of Rose Kennedy right now so it was interesting to look through these pictures at the same time. Most of these are not pictures that have been shown before. It is fun to see so many pictures of these famous people as babies and small children. By the time you get to the 1940s, it seems sad. You see these beautiful, healthy smiling faces and know that soon several will be dead. I was particularly saddened by the picture of the family together on vacation near Cannes in 1940 [...]

    8. Lisa says:

      This is a very nice book of family photos of the Kennedys and Fitzgeralds and their children from 1878 to 1946. The book therefore includes the death of the oldest child of Joseph P. and Rose Kennedy, Joe Jr. in 1944, but ends prior to the deaths of any of the others. It also includes John F. Kennedy's first Congressional race in 1946 and his swearing-in. There is a selection of letters written by one family member to another over the years and introduction to the various sections by Caroline Ke [...]

      Although the book does cover the exact time period as reflected in the title, I actually wish it had gone farther, but alas I loved this book! Although I have seen some of these pictures, the majority of these photos were new. Some of my favorite parts of the book were the keen descriptions of various family members by other family members. On a side note, like some other books that I have read about the Kennedy's this also shows that a bright shining light burns out after Joe Jr. is killed. I t [...]

      A book that well what it is. Nostalgic photos of the nine Kennedy offspring arranged from baby pix to the early 20's, Some interesting and amusing correspondence between parents and siblings and sibling to sibling. A glimpse into a very private, very Catholic, very athletic family. Not a bad way to spend a few hours on a snowy afternoontakes no longer. Suggest the library, not worth the $40 cost unless one is a Kennedyphile.

    11. Dona says:

      I really enjoyed this book. Not so much the text, which I had read in other books before, but for the pictures, many of which I had never seen. Fascinating peek at the personal life of a celebrated family. I found the pictures of the “hidden” sister, Rosemary, particularly touching knowing what happened to her only a short time later. She seemed to be so happy and full of life. Joe Kennedy should have been so ashamed of what he had done to her.

    12. SavageGrace says:

      Amazing photographic glimpse into the pre-White House years of the Kennedy family, starting from 1878 and ending in 1946. I absolutely loved every photo, telegram and letter shared with us in this beautiful book. Many thanks to the JFK Library (and Caroline Kennedy) for this lovely album!

    13. Amy Getz says:

      I read most books on the Kennedys, and while this book was OK, it wasn't all that informative. I read it on my iPad and it would probably be better to read the actual book in order to see the pictures better.

    14. Judy Erb says:

      I have numerous books about the Kennedy's and yet there are pictures and stories contained in this volume that I have never seen or read. A "must have" for any one who admires this family.

    15. Jean says:

      A very touching, heartwarming, and heartbreaking "story" of the Kennedy family which provides an intimacy into their lives and their family relationships through the use of personal family photos.

    16. Nicole Sunderlin says:

      It's a Kennedy book. It gets 5 stars duh.

    17. Jennifer says:

      What a great collection of photos! I loved looking at the clothes, fashions, rare color photos.

    18. Cindy says:

      I adored the letters to mother and father from the young Kennedys Loved it.
