If You Traveled West in a Covered Wagon | If You Lived in Colonial Times | School Then and Now | If You Sailed on the Mayflower in 1620 | If You Lived When There Was Slavery in America | If You Lived at the Time of the Civil War | If You Lived at the Time of the American Revolution
In 58 tantalizing questions and answers, author Ann McGovern gives readers a fascinating look at life in New York City at the end of the 19th century-where the rich and poor lived, how they dressed, traveled, dined, and entertained themselves, what kind of work they did.
Readers may be surprised to learn that many children had to work for a living in horrendous conditions, that school were often inadequate and overcrowded (there could be 100 or more students in a single classroom), and that bicycling was the most popular sport in the country. (Baseball, cowling, tennis, football, boxing, golf, archery, and skating were also popular. Basketball and volleyball were new.)
Together, the text and art are filled with details that bring the era to life for young readers.
