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

Because settler children were expected to help out with chores at home, there was often little time for play. Recess time at school gave children the opportunity to play Schoolyard Games. Colorful illustrations help explain early versions of:
-- skipping, hopscotch, and clapping games
-- string and hoop games
-- group games, hiding games, and ball games
-- marbles, tops, and other toys
