This here's another picture book on life in the Plymouth Colony in 1627. This one follows the day of a boy, seven-year-old Samuel Eaton. It's a big day for Samuel--the first day he's allowed to work with the men as his father and a neighbor harvest their rye crop. Of course, that's not the selling point of the book. The main appeal of the volume is the phototgraphs of the Plimouth Plantation reenactment that show readers what life back then probably looked like. It's a nice little book, worth checking out if you want a quick history lesson for you or your young'un.
