This is a very nice resource for the beginning reader who wants to know all the various craftspeople that inhabited a normal colonial village. Nice photos and illustrations give the reader a look inside the world of the artist that lived back then. I like that the author includes children in the details so young people can see that even back then, children were a big part of the working life.
