We looked at this book to supplement our study of colonial times with practical activities and crafts, but we weren't impressed. It's simple enough that kids can read it and follow directions themselves, but the activities were hit or miss (mostly miss) and we didn't do many at all. Carlson's book about the Native-Americans, More Than Moccasins, was much better.
