A Child's Day (Historic Communities) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

John's home does not have a sink or plumbing. Instead, John keeps a pitcher of water and a washbowl in his bedroom for washing his face and hands in the morning.

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

John and his sister Emily live with their family in an early settler community. After rising at sun-up to do their chores on the farm and in the household, John and Emily's day begins with a long walk to the one-room school.

A Child's Day also describes:
-- reading and ciphering
-- "making their manners"
-- settler children's books, toys, and games
-- the different expectations boys and girls had for their future
