Hott Review

Colonial Williamsburg is one of my favorite places. I love history when it’s hands on a fun – not so much the technical kind with just names and dates. In that respect this was an awesome book for me!

When we went to Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown on our honeymoon eons ago, we learned so many odd facts and stories that I was enthralled. This book captured those stories and added many more!

This was one of those books that I read a myth or two and then shared them with the family thereby giving us all a fun way to learn and something that interested the entire family – from 5 to 60!
