Taken from Chapter 9: Love your work! No excuse for laziness One of the reasons the settlers wanted to have many children was so that the children could help with all the work that had to be done around the home. Children were taught that laziness was the worst sin of all. Children had to rise early in the morning and make themselves useful before going to school. After school they had to return straight home and finish other chores before supper. Children were punished if they complained about having to do a job. They were not allowed to say they were tired.Review:
This series truly provides a delightful glimpse into the nineteenth century. The illustrations match the stories and are a visual reminder of life in another era. This series of fifteen books is ideal for both Canadian and U. S. pioneer life studies -- Library Materials Guide, Spring 1985
