Here are 2 late 1800s books for children by Mara L. Pratt. The first one was copyrighted in 1888 and is titled "American History Stories Vol 1 by Mara L Pratt". The stories are from before our nation was formed, and covers Columbus as a youth and continues through the settling of the colonies with lots of other stories. Very interesting!! Almost 200 pages that will keep you reading on and on.
The second book is from 1894 and is titled "Stories of Colonial Children". I especially liked the story about the Jack o Lanterns and the Indians!! Over 200 pages with some illustrations and stories of how it was in the early days in our USA.
Both books are hardback, are 7" x 5" and are quite entertaining! Overall condition: good with some expected wear or marks to covers; clean insides. One has a small piece of page top missing on inside cover page and may have previous owners name inside...or not. Great read for our youth...history seems to be getting erased in todays world! Let's teach our kids how it really was back in the day!
