Learn about the daily life of Colonial Americans Nov 6, 2003
Using an ABC book format, we learn of various aspects of colonial life in America: dress, trades, daily living and even games that children played. Just enough text to keep the attention span of kids aged 6 and under. Illustrations are drawings and photographs. A nice addition to learning the history of our United States of America. The content focuses mainly on daily living such as who does what type of job and how people live, such as what their kitchens were like, how they cooked, and about how they dealt with the hazards of chimney and roof fires. Slavery is touched on very briefly and it is implied that all Colonials owned slaves.
