My Life in the American Colonies (My Place in History) (Paperback)
Living in the American colonies was difficult at times as towns were built, governance was established, and people from many different backgrounds, including Native Americans, learned to live together. By the 1770s, many colonists were asserting their belief in a new country free from English rule. Readers meet a young colonist growing up during the tumult of the pre-Revolutionary era. This unique, first-person perspective introduces readers to a period important to the social studies curriculum. Historical images and fact boxes add context to the main content, which focuses more on the chores, schooling, and family life of colonial children.
