    1. This was on our free-reading shelf during elementary school. Being Canadian children, we had little idea of what "Colonial Times" might be, but figured it must be something like "Pioneer Days."The illustrations were memorable, anyway.

    2. First sentence: When were Colonial times? Colonial times were a long time ago. Premise/plot: Interested in reading about what the New England states were like during the years 1620-1730? This early reader is for you. It is written almost exclusively in question and answer format. Sometimes questions are answered on one page, sometimes questions are answered on two pages. Whether the answer is short or long, the answer tends to be interesting and engaging. My thoughts: This was one of the first n [...]

    4. Found this in a used bookstore for a quarter. Good overview of Colonial times, covering 1630-1730 in the New England colonies (PA, NJ, NY, CT, RI, MA, VT, NH, ME). The book is structured in Q&A style, with a question and answers covering 1 to 3 pages, along with color illustrations. It covers everything form clothes and food, to school and church, and travel and communication.I did learn a few things reading through, and though originally written in 1964, I think this is still a good book fo [...]

    5. I thought this book was excellent! I read this to my son (8 yrs old / 3rd grade), Camden as extra reading because we are studying early American history. I found it to be a wonderful addition to our study! I learned so much myself. This book does a wonderful job covering all aspects of early colonial life in a clear, east to read and understand way! My son gave it five stars! He loved it so much that when we finished it, he said he wanted to read it again!

    6. I grabbed this on a trip to Plimoth Plantation and my son asked for it as a bedtime story. Definitely something that will be more engaging for him in a few years, but as a history teacher and buff, I love it.

    9. In this book, students will learn about how people lived, dressed, and acted during the colonial times. The book listed several different trades that people during that time had to do to survive. People made their own clothes and furniture too. Times were difficult because the people were new to the land and the things that were not imported had to be made or grown. This book asks numerous questions and it gives the answer to the questions. This would be a good book to read to the students, and [...]

    11. So it's the first snow fall of the winter season . . .10"s or so, lost power for 2 days.This book was the perfect thing to read to my boys during our night of no electricity, warming by the fireplace and reading by candle light.I loved the question and answer format and thought the book could have gone on for a bit longer.My son was cracking up over some of the laws (kind of a scary funny) and wanted to know who the heck created them and why?! And I think he asked me WHAT?! several times through [...]

    12. Back in the third grade, we had a unit in social studies on Colonial America. We had this book as our textbook to help learn about how colonial people lived. The copy I was given was very old but I read it cover to cover, and re read it. Something at that time I never did. This book changed my life. It introduced me to the subject of history and since then, I have devoted my life to learning about the people's and civilizations of the past. It has fascinated me to no end.

    13. This was another book that came to me via school book orders. I loved its question and answer format, and read it repeatedly. I still remember that in the list of instructions for kids was this gem "stuff not your mouth to fill your cheeks," or something along those lines. There was a lot of things kids (and adults!) were not supposed to do.And how creepy is that cover picture of modern kids looking into that old school mirror and seeing their colonial times counterparts?

    15. This is a great piece of literature to use around 2nd to 4th grade. It goes in to talking about the pilgrims and the first snow. It's set up in an awesome question answer format that keeps the students engaged. Would be great for an integrated lesson plan around thanksgiving for reading, writing and social studies.

    17. The flow of this book was amazing. I thought it would just be a fact and answer book, but it was much better. It told all about what life would be like in colonial times. It had humor though and was an interesting quick read. I think students will really like this non-fiction read out loud.

    18. Great fact-filled series about how people lived in different times/cultures/places. Answers questions such as "How did people wear their hair? travel? get news?" or "What happened when people broke the law? you were sick? went out at night?." Best for independent readers.

    19. I bought this book for Ethan on our trip to Plymouth, Mass. He really enjoyed reading it and was very interested in how kids lived, in those days. We even had a great conversation on some of the "strange" things they could not do on Sunday. =o)

    20. This is a great and informative book about colonial times, though it is very lengthy. I took excerpts from it to read to my class during my PTLS. It has lots of interesting information about the thirteen colonies and it has great illustrations.
