Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "There's no need for readers to travel to Colonial Williamsburg to learn about early American occupations. The Colonial People series brings immediacy to the lives of early settlers by viewing a skilled tradesperson's role in his or her community at large. The Doctor hearkens back to a time when leeches and bloodletting were considered to be viable medical options. From harsh-climate-related illnesses to smallpox outbreaks to early surgical techniques, medical care in the seventeenth century was nothing if not fascinating. Illustrations are a nice mix of period etchings and photographs of old documents as well as modern photographs (some taken at Colonial Williamsburg). Each title includes informative sidebars, including one that encourages reader participation. Kids can follow directions to dye their own fabrics, sew their own aprons, or grow their own herb gardens in other words, stage their own reenactment of colonial times.--Kelley, Ann Copyright 2010 Booklist"
