Our Colonial Year

Our Colonial Year

For Ages: 4 - 8
In Colonial America
there were no big grocery stores.
No microwaves to serve up
dinner piping hot.
And no dishwashers
for cleaning up.
So what chores did
colonial children do?
From quilting bees and
maple sugaring in winter,
to tilling the earth in spring,
to harvesting an autumn feast,
storyteller and historian
Cheryl Harness tells a
month-by-month story
of a brand-new nation and
the children in every city and farm
whose hard work
built America.
Readers of all ages will delight
in this vibrant folk art
chronicle of one indelible
nation way back when.
