Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Examines the barn as the center of farm life for early settlers of North America.

Synopsis:

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

The barn was the center of activity on a busy settler farm. Different kinds of barns are clearly detailed from the English and bank style barns in wooded areas to the sod barns of the western prairies. Children are pictured sharing the work of milking cows and mucking out stalls. Special features show:

-- the fun of a barn raising bee

-- a tools and gadgets section

-- seasonal activities, from birthing to harvest and winter storage
