Book cover
By: (1851-1911)

"Child Life in Colonial Days" by Alice Morse Earle is a fascinating and insightful look into the daily lives of children during the colonial period in America. The author delves into various aspects of children's lives, including education, play, chores, and social customs.

I found the book to be extremely well-researched and thorough, providing a wealth of information about how children lived in early America. Earle's writing style is engaging and easy to follow, making it an enjoyable read for anyone interested in history or colonial America.

One of the things I appreciated most about this book is Earle's attention to detail and her ability to bring the past to life through vivid descriptions and anecdotes. By painting a picture of what daily life was like for colonial children, the author helps readers understand the challenges and joys these young people experienced.

Overall, "Child Life in Colonial Days" is a valuable resource for anyone looking to learn more about the history of childhood in America. I highly recommend it to history buffs, educators, and anyone with an interest in the lives of children throughout the ages.

Book Description:
The accounts of oldtime child life gathered for this book are wholly unconscious and full of honesty and simplicity, not only from the attitude of the child, but from that of his parents, guardians, and friends. The records have been made from affectionate interest, not from scientific interest; no profound search has been made for motives or significance, but the proof they give of tenderness and affection in the family are beautiful to read and to know.
