This newly revised edition describes how the kitchen was the center of family activity in the old days. Here families ate their meals, played games, and told stories with only the fireplace and a few candles for warmth and light. In The Kitchen, young readers will take a close look at the early fireplace and the tools and utensils surrounding it. Domestic chores carried out in the kitchen are described including: baking bread, making butter, preserving food and washing clothes.
