Publisher's Description

Dozens of fun, hands-on projects and activities from the days of the American pioneers

Join twelve-year-old Sam Butler and his nine-year-old sister, Liz, on the American frontier in 1843. Discover the hard work, fun, and adventure of their daily lives, and along the way learn how to play games, make toys and crafts, and perform everyday activities just like Liz and Sam.

You can make your own homemade soda pop and cook up a batch of johnnycakes. Use clay to create your own pottery and design a string of African trade beads, or learn the Native American art of sandpainting. You can even make your own holiday decorations out of dough or pinecones--if you're not too busy playing tangram, a Chinese puzzle game, or a beanbag target game.

Pioneer Days is filled with interesting bits of historical information and fun facts about growing up in days gone by. Discover how different--and how similar--life was for American kids in history.

Watch for Colonial Days the next exciting book in the American Kids in History series!

    The Storm Family
    Our family loves the American Kids in History series! We used Pioneer Days as a supplement to our unit study of Little House on the Prairie. The projects, games, activities and recipes are so easy for the kids. We were able to use this for all of our children ranging in ages from 3 to 17. They all had so much fun!
