As generations come and go, memories leave also. Most of this book takes place from the late 1800’s to about 1940. It is a true story and tells how a typical family lived and enjoyed life back then. Adults can read this and recall what their grandparents told them about what happened in their childhood. Children, today, are living a different life from what children lived back then, but they need to know about times long ago. They will enjoy this book as well!
