Publisher Description:

This reader uses a series of stories and poems to teach students about the exploration and settlement of the New World. Students will learn about people and events of colonial America and the struggle for American independence; and will be introduced to such famous people as Christopher Columbus, Jonathan Edwards, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, and Betsy Ross.

Category Description for Finding a New Land (4):

A completely revised and reworked version of Boys and Girls of Colonial Days, this reader has doubled in size! It now includes 8 units and 29 reading selections, including some poetry. You will find some of the same selections as in Boys and Girls, but plenty of "new" material taken from other history books of yesteryear. Stories involving famous figures, including Leif Ericsson, Columbus, Jonathan Edwards, Paul Revere, Betsy Ross, and Phyllis Wheatley are mixed in with stories of colonial children. Many stories now feature full-color illustrations, and vocabulary words are formatted in bold. After each story, you'll find a list of vocabulary words with definitions, five comprehension questions, and an extension activity. A test packet and an answer key are also available.

Interesting History Reader
Nicely done! But it should be made clear to the reader whether this is wholly history or mostly historical fiction.

nice book
This a very nice book. But I wanted to put in that while it does contain stories from: Boys and Girls of Colonial Days by Carolyn Sherwin, it does not contain 3 of them. They are: Betsey's Guest,The Boy Who Guarded Washington, and Visiting at Mount Vernon. I was bummed to find them missing since I am doing BF Character Through Literature Primary this year. Still a great book though- just a heads up to any interested!
