Taking young readers on a journey back in time, this dynamic new series showcases various aspects of colonial life, from people and clothing to homes and food. Each book contains creative illustrations, interesting facts, highlighted vocabulary words, end-of-book challenges, and sidebars that help children understand the differences between modern and colonial life and inspire them to imagine what it would have been like to grow up in colonial America. The volumes in this series focus on the colonists but also include relevant information about Native Americans, offering a variety of perspectives on life in the colonies.
Discussing the various products made by colonists—from flour and iron horseshoes to wooden buckets and furniture—this engaging guidebook teaches young readers about the different craftsmen of the era, including blacksmiths, coppers, and millers. Additional attention is also paid to the goods produced by Native Americans, including leather moccasins and woven baskets, and how these goods were exchanged in a barter economy.
