Reviews - What do customers think about Colonial Life (Historic Communities)?

Colonial Life Brought to Life  May 13, 2008
This book is a wonderful teaching tool for explaining the culture of the colonies. Drawings and photographs bring to life the informational text on subjects such as education, family, clothing, entertainment, and the life of slaves in the colonies. Photographs come from interpretive community reinactment. A table of contents, glossary, and index help the students navigate its information. This is an Accelerated Reader book rated at a 5.9 level. Most of my fifth grade students can read it.
Accurate history creatively presented!  Sep 22, 2007
Every book in this series, Historic Communities, is a work of art! Colonial Life is an exceptional eample of acurate history brought to life with drawings, paintings and photographs of costumed historical interpreters in settings such as the Governor's Palace, the Raleigh Tavern and wonderful homes and gardens in Colonial Williamsburg.

The lives of early settlers, slaves, children, tradesmen and more are all examined in a manner that is understandable to young readers and demonstrates how these lives would have intertwined.

Guaranteed to liven up the study of colonial history!
Easy way to learn basic history  Apr 2, 2000
This book wasn't like most history books because it had many pictures. I went to the library to get some books about the 13 colonies and out of all of them, this was the most appealing. Most history books have tiny print and few or boring pictures, but this had pictures to help you learn and medium-sized print. This had basic information. It didn't get to deatailed so if you already know a lot about the 13 colnies I wouldn't reccommend it.
