Reviews - What do customers think about A Slave Family (Colonial People)?

What ending would you give this story?  Oct 21, 2007
Young readers will explore the lives of slave families in the colonies. How slavery effected marriage and offspring, education and work is thoroughly explored in an accurate and lively fashion, inviting readers to question the meaning of what they read. Would it be better to do the hard labor in the fields, or do the work in the plantation owner's house, wearing better clothing and eating better food than the rest of your family?

The book contains a wealth of information allowing history students to make informed decisions in classroom or family discussion.

Lavish illustrations include photographs of costumed interpreters in accurate historical settings. A Slave Family is an essential component to a child's understanding of this challenging and often disturbing era of history.
