Houghton Mifflin, “Prairie Museum”

Under the Paperback Plus reading program, Houghton Mifflin republishes children’s books with pertinent story lines to entice learning.
“The Prairie Museum, 1900-1920” is an eight-page spread depicting life on the prairie inserted in a black-and-white fifth-grade paperback, “Skylark.” Each spread covers subject matter showcasing items used in the home, on the farm, and for transportation during that time. Marlisa worked with the editors to develop the content and layout. The photo essay’s introduction is “Step inside! See tools, transportation, and house wares prairie farmers used in the twentieth century.”
