Taking young readers on a journey back in time, this dynamic series showcases various aspects of colonial life. 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. From barn raising and corn husking parties to feasts of thanksgiving and oral histories, this book covers the traditions of the colonial period, how they varied across the country, and how colonial traditions compared to those of the Native Americans. Hands-on activities introduce young learners to quilting bees, harvests, storytelling, and more.
