Product Details


A carefully designed book that brings the past and the hand-created objects of the past to full-blooded life.
—Kirkus Reviews

This collection illuminates the country’s handmade past and offers a challenge to today’s tech-tethered readers: “Consider what you might try crafting with your hands in your own time.”
—Publishers Weekly

Schaefer spotlights 14 handmade objects, crafted between 1798 and 1950, focusing on the circumstances of their creation and use…Stadlander’s colorful folk-style paintings are rendered in gouache and feature numerous setting details. Spreads are appealingly designed using multiple panels that suggest quilt blocks.

Children will be intrigued to learn of the origins of 14 one-of-a-kind objects in 13 stories told on double-page spreads…Children exploring this period in American history will be fascinated with the material and find much for discussion in classrooms.
—School Library Connection
