Review quote

Verna Fisher's book is a delight for any teacher of elementary and middle school students. The author uses many teaching methods and makes use of history, jokes, and activities throughout the book. Students are exposed to the people and events and experiences of Colonial America in an up-close and personal way. This book may be used in any classroom or home schooled situation. Joseph A.

Thus begins this very basic but nevertheless intriguing volume in the Colonial Quest series." Booklist spotlight on nonfiction
