DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CHILDHOOD NOW AND IN THE PAST We play football a lot and at that time, they did not even have any balls. They always walk to places and we use cars or bicycles. They did not have video games and we play with them all the time. Parents and teachers were very strict with children in the past. Now parents and teachers treat us nicely.

PERSONAL OPINION Most of us liked this book but a person in the group did not like it because he does not like the old. We liked it because it talks about interesting things about what children did long time ago and it shows us the change that has happened over time. Most of us liked learning about what children enjoyed doing more than a century ago. How they spent their free time and the games and toys they used. It was interesting to learn how things have changed. But one thing has not changed and it is that children prefer enjoy playing with friends intead of going to school.
