Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bobbie Kalman's acclaimed Historic Communities Series provides a close-up view of how people lived more than two hundred years ago. Colorful photos, many taken by Bobbie Kalman herself at restored historic villages across the country, help support the fascinating information. Children will have fun learning about:
-- early homes and the settler community
-- what people wore and the crafts they made
-- how settlers made their living
-- how they spent their leisure time
-- the values, customs, and traditions of the early settlers

Victorian Christmas shows how some of our most loved Christmas traditions were first celebrated in North America during the Victorian era. Gorgeous photographs and full-color illustrations highlight:
-- decorating the evergreen tree
-- gift-giving and sending Christmas cards
-- Christmas caroling
-- jolly old St. Nick
-- how to make simple decorations like Victorian children did

Synopsis:

Prosperous families of the 1800s loved to surround themselves with lavish, beautiful objects creating Christmas traditions that are still carried on today. Victorian Christmas shows how the traditions of decorating the evergreen tree, gift-giving, Christmas caroling, and even jolly old St. Nick were started and embraced during the Victorian era. Full color.
