Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 1-3Organized logically, this book first introduces the Colonial period and settlement of the Eastern seaboard by traders and seekers of religious freedom, and then progresses to look at their homes, clothing, food, religion, schooling, and play. The lives of children are not always emphasized; the brief text describes general conditions and does not always elaborate on particulars in the experiences of the young. Because of the New England focus, no mention is made of the fact that life in the middle and southern colonies was somewhat different. Well-captioned archival paintings illustrate the text. Unfortunately, the smudged and blurred reproductions impair their usefulness. Phonetic pronunciations of some unfamiliar words are included within the text. Additionally, these words appear in a glossary.Jacqueline Elsner, Athens Regional Library, GA
