From back cover: In Felicity's New Sister, Mother is expecting a baby. All the extra work makes Felicity tired of being the eldest sister. But when a terrible storm puts her family in danger, Felicity realizes how important it is to be the eldest and how wonderful it is to become a sister all over again.*****After you read Felicity's story, learn how to make a colonial baby gift just like Felicity might have made for her sister.
Felicity knows that when the baby is born she will be kept very busy and she tries to find some time for herself and it just doesn't seem to happen. She agrees with Mrs. Wentworth that they should travel to her grandfather's plantation but the trip doesn't turn out like expected and they have some surprises in store. A PEEK INTO THE PAST describes what it was like for babies and young children in the early years of this country. The craft is a colonial baby gift-a pin cushion can be crafted from the instructions.
I like to use to read at bedtime or for craft time and then make the craft.
