This book is a collection of twenty poems for elementary aged school children. These poems aim to entertain young readers while teaching them about pioneer life, native life, and American history. Colorful illustrations accompany each poem. Mrs. Brown imparts her enthusiasm for American history by taking her class on a series of field trips to historic sites. The book also includes an extensive glossary of Colonial terms and maps of both the British Colonies and "Native Tribes and Nations."

Recommends it for: grade 3
Third grade characters share poems of their field trip to a colonial village (similar to Sturbridge or Deerfield). The poems aren't great, but the third grade voices ring true. A fun connection to the 3rd grade American History unit.
