Written in 1922, this book address the problems that parents then and today both share--how do you make history interesting for children? The Newark Museum decided to create a living history center where children could see history in action; out of this endeavor came A Day in a Colonial Home. Its simple story elaborates upon a normal family's life and the goings on within it. Items children might be unfamiliar with have pen illustrations, photographs and review notes in the back to help them gain a better understanding of what a Colonial family owned and operated. 70 pages, softcover.
