Bobbie Kalman's acclaimed Historic Communities Series provides a close-up view of how people lived more than two hundred years ago. Colorful photos, many taken by Bobbie Kalman herself at restored historic villages across the country, help support the fascinating information. Children will have fun learning about:
-- early homes and the settler community
-- what people wore and the crafts they made
-- how settlers made their living
-- how they spent their leisure time
-- the values, customs, and traditions of the early settlers
In the old days the kitchen was the center of family activity. Here the settles ate their meals, played games, and told stories with only the fireplace and a few candles for warmth and light. In The Kitchen, young readers will take a close look at the early fireplace and the tools and utensils surrounding it.
Domestic chores described include:
-- baking bread
-- making butter

Taken from Chapter 8: Plenty of Food We know how the settlers cooked their food, but where did they get it? There were no grocery stores or supermarkets in the early days. Fortunately for their settlers, food was all around them. They hunted and trapped animals and birds, caught fish in rivers and lakes, and gathered fruit from the forests. They also grew their own fruits, vegetables, and grain, and raised farm animals such as cows, pigs, goats, turkeys, and chickens.
