Sarah Morton's Day

by Kate Waters

Sarah Morton's Day is a slim little picture book showing a day in the life of a Pilgrim girl on the Plymouth Colony in 1627. From the notes, I guess there's a living history museum out in Plymouth, Massachusetts where folks reenact the life of the Pilgrims and Wampanoag people in those days. Sarah Morton is one of the characters and the book uses photographs of her reenactment to show readers what a typical day for a ten-year-old girl might be like. There's also a bit of a story as Sarah ponders some relationship issues with her step-father. It's an enjoyable, five-minute read for grownups, worth checking out if you want to educate your kids (or yourself) about life in the old days.
