Colonial Life is an introduction to life for children in colonial America. It places readers in a day-in-the-life scenario of a colonial child and makes comparisons to modern-day life with the many conveniences people take for granted. Readers also get a glimpse of the hardships and benefits of life 300 years ago. The illustrations add rich texture to the text.
