Who were the colonists? What did they eat? How did they dress? This title informs the reader about the history, social life, and customs of the colonial era in the Middle Atlantic states. Color illustrations, maps, first person quotes, and even recipes make this perfect for school reports as well as for children interested in American history. The table of contents includes chapters such as "At Home in Town and Country" and "Boys and Girls Together" allowing students to compare and contrast colonial life to their own lives. Children, their parents and teachers will appreciate the clearly written text and large font size. This title makes a good addition to your reference collection with its glossary, bibliography, notes on quotes, and index. Librarians may want to buy two copies of the "How We Lived" series so that one can circulate and the other can be kept as reference. 2000, Benchmark, Ages 6 to 12, $27.07.
