Homeschool Resouce of the Day: Being A Boy

Being A Boy (PDF ebook)

An absolutely delightful and entertaining book about the life of a farm boy in New England in the early 1800s. As we go through the seasons of the year, we learn of the hard work, play, holidays, interests and pasttimes of farm boys of the day, and also of their family and community life in those bygone days. Written in the later 1800s with a realistic but warm and nostalgic style, this would make an excellent read aloud, and is also a great "living history" book that captures a glimpse of childhood and rural life in pre-Civil War days. What an eye opener.

Highly recommended!
