Abstract:

Describes the lives and architecture of Charles and Henry Greene, and includes activities for children, such as creating ivory soap sculptures and making old-fashioned root beer floats. Art o Architecture o Activities is a unique children's book that explores a fascinating period in American history. Children learn what it was like to live in turn-of-the-century America, what children of that era read, what games they played, even what their homes and schools looked like. This book also tells the whole stories of the brothers Greene, including how they got their starts in architecture, how their lives and careers were changed as they traveled across the country, and the people they met along the way that changed their lives. With an entertaining variety of activities, questions, photographs, and vignettes for children to ponder, this book is a fascinating look into the lives of Charles and Henry Green, and also a close-up look the Industrial Revolution and the birth of the Arts & Crafts movement. Arts & Crafts enthusiasts will love this book, as will lovers of architecture, bungalow owners, and anyone who wants to learn more about this period in American history. It's a book the whole family will enjoy!
