I bought Colonial Times, the first in this series when I visited Kykut (sp?) and also this colonial house across the way in Historic Hudson Valley. Ok, I bought this book two days ago-my hand's glued to it-cannot put this book down. These books are great. I'm 15, and they entertain me so much. Now, before I read the books I had alot of knowledge on these subjects-now I have even more! Did you know women put on rouge made of-bugs?! A typical stew was composed of 1 chicken, 4 chicks, 1 beaver, and 30 cockscombs! History was never more fascinating-and entertaining-with the most wonderful guide and author to make it fun-Joy Massof! Thank you!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I am a fifth grade teacher and have seen my share of yawns when it's time to work on history. I was delighted to discover these exciting books. The pictures are beautiful and the text is entertaining and informative. When used with 'Colonial Times' they set the tone for a lively classroom session. My students adored them! I highly recommend these books for any child who says history is boring!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
