Probably learned more about early Virginia from this than in school! Oct 1, 2008
This is not just for young girls. I have bought this and the other Welcome to _____ World (Felicity, Kit, Kirsten, Samantha, Molly, Kaya, Josefina and Addy) for women from 5 years to 85 years. All have been engrossed and enchanted. Best American history teaching you can find! Do not hesitate to add this and the other AG Welcome books to your library.
Welcome to Felicity's World 1774 . . . . Jun 11, 2008
This book is excellent as a teaching tool. It describes life and all its surroundings in the year 1774. Very well written and photos are excellent. I used it for a 5th Grade class on a class trip to a 1690 homestead.

This book will not disappoint. My daughter loves looking through this book. It is a history lesson and very entertaining. As an adult I thoroughly enjoyed looking through this book.
"Look and Feel" History for junior readers Feb 22, 2008
This book appealed to my wife and granddaughter. They said it spoke to their point of view and by describing how everyday things were done that are still part of a girl's activities the book makes that time more vivid for them. Recommend the series.
