What was life really like back in colonial days? Icky and gross, full of bedbugs, lice, rotten teeth, and lots of bad smells. Hop into a time machine and travel back to learn about it.

Take a trip to colonial America but make sure you pack soap, toilet paper, toothbrush, and hand sanitizer. Life was smelly, dirty, and buggy!

This book will make you "grossly" thankful you didn't live in America in 1770, when lice were in your hair (and wig)and barbers pulled your rotten teeth without painkillers (except for a shot of whiskey). Children's books like this one are often an interesting read for adults, too.
