Free Book Friday!

This week we’re going for the gross factor by giving away a copy of Ick! Yuck! Ew! Our Gross American History from Millbrook Press.

In history class, you’ve studied people who lived long ago. But do you know just how gross daily life was in the United States around the time of the American Revolution? 
• People rarely bathed. 
• They didn’t wash most of their clothes regularly. 
• Their teeth were rotting. 
• Bedbugs feasted on people as they slept. 
• Lice crawled through their hair (and their wigs) day and night. 

Ready to step out for a breath of fresh air? Well, look out, because the streets were filled with poop. Don’t believe it? Hop in a time machine and travel back to June 1770 in the pages of this book!
