Great book for kids!  Feb 21, 2007
I home school my son and needed to find a book that would help him understand what life was like in during the colonial days. This book proved to be the perfect fit. It has great activities and he is continually asking to do more projects. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for some fun with their kids.

Great New Series!  May 20, 2000
