This is another one of the If You Were Me and Lived In books that combines geography and history. This one is about colonial america and some of the people who came over from England to America and what their life was like. It teaches about what they ate, how “breakfast” came from “break fast” and a lot of other fun things. The only down side is the text is white on brown which got a little bit obnoxious to continue to read all in one go.
I received a copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
