From Almanac to Zig-Zag Fence, this delightful ABC book also serves as an introduction to many of the objects that filled the early colonial landscape. With a focus on things that are ours--as opposed to items brought over from England or Europe- - this book will serve as a fun and engaging way to study American history. Each double-page spread focuses on a single letter, with multiple illustrations and historical notes that explain what objects were used for. Discover what a Shaker Apple Drier is, the difference between American and European Axes, what ell-rules were used for, where the first lightening rod was installed, and much more. 64 pages, softcover.
