In this newly revised edition, John and his sister Emily live with their family in a farming community. After rising at sun-up to do their chores on the farm and in the household, John and Emily’s day begins with a long walk to the one-room school. A Child’s Day also describes: reading and ciphering, “making their manners,” the different expectations boys and girls had for their future, children’s books, toys, and games.
