Child Life in Colonial Days

Gelesen von Susan Morin

(4,375 Sterne; 8 Bewertungen)

The accounts of old-time child life gathered for this book are wholly unconscious and full of honesty and simplicity, not only from the attitude of the child, but from that of his parents, guardians, and friends. The records have been made from affectionate interest, not from scientific interest; no profound search has been made for motives or significance, but the proof they give of tenderness and affection in the family are beautiful to read and to know. - Summary taken from Foreword of book.

Susan Morin’s voice is soothing and reassuring, even while reading about colonial discipline towards children. Very interesting indeed.
