It provides a great day-in-the-life picture. I borrowed this book from the library because it is part of the "core curriculum" recommended by E.D. Hirsch.
My 6 year old daughter now has a very concrete basis for comparing her own life to what it might have been at another time. It's inspiring and fun. And a great teaching tool (as mentioned in the previous review.)
Readers watch Sarah going through her daily paces: dressing, cooking, polishing, churning, milking, mucking, etc. Wjhat with her home schooling and sacred duties she has little time to play, but manages to squeeze in some feminine recreation. Her mother worries that the girl will not learn to love her new father, whom Sarah earnestly tries to please. Mayhap he will make a stool for her to sit at table or a simple game or toy. This book also includes Notes about Sarah, Plimoth and Amelia--as well as recipes, riddles and rhymes, plus a glossary of unfamiliar words. A gentle, well-researched introduction to the lifestyle of child in New England’s first colony. Great for girls 6-10. IThere is also a companion book for Pilgrim boys.)

Not the best book, but as a descendant of Sarah Morton's sister, we had to have it. One page was bent at the corner and therefore uncut. Really odd.Published 4 months ago by Sarah W
