Children's Review: If You Were Me and Lived In...Colonial America

If You Were Me and Lived in...Colonial America (An Introduction to Civilizations Throughout Time) (Volume 4) - Carole P. Roman, Sarah Bird Wright

We received this book to give an honest review.

In this book we get to learn how life was in Colonial America. It honestly seems like it was really hard living in this time period especially when you only lived in a one bedroom home with a lot of family members. K and I both learned some things that we never knew before such as how they made plaster and what they called it to what people wore. This book is very informative for children age but it is not boring. The illustrations are done great and go well with the story.
It was nice to read how there were obstacles with the Americans that settled here and how they overcame them.
