Along the way, I have become very pleased with the amount of knowledge my children (7 and 9) are retaining. The projects truly do include items found in most homes, and most are easy enough for the children to do alone. The book is packed with so much detail and information on daily colonial life, as well as famous figures, stories, and timelines--it is now our go-to reference book on that time period. I can't wait to go through Kris Bordessa's other hands-on books.
