Bobbie Kalman's acclaimed Historic Communities Series provides a close-up view of how people lived more than two hundred years ago. Colorful photos, many taken by Bobbie Kalman herself at restored historic villages across the country, help support the fascinating information. Children will have fun learning about:
-- early homes and the settler community
-- what people wore and the crafts they made
-- how settlers made their living
-- how they spent their leisure time
-- the values, customs, and traditions of the early settlers

Colonial Crafts introduces young readers to the craftspeople who created useful works of art by hand, many of which have lasted more than two hundred years. Children will find out how the artisans learned their trades through many years of apprenticeship, as their masters did before them.
