Synopsis

Colonial Clothes by

Taking young readers on a journey back in time, this dynamic new series showcases various aspects of colonial life, from people and clothing to homes and food. Each book contains creative illustrations, interesting facts, highlighted vocabulary words, end-of-book challenges, and sidebars that help children understand the differences between modern and colonial life and inspire them to imagine what it would have been like to grow up in colonial America. The volumes in this series focus on the colonists but also include relevant information about Native Americans, offering a variety of perspectives on life in the colonies. Looking at the clothing that men and women wore in colonial times, this book examines how fabrics were made and discusses the work of various professions related to clothing, including tailors, cobblers, tanners, milliners, and wigmakers.
