"A fascinating look at children’s pleasures in the seventeenth-century Netherlands. Outstanding!"—Martha Dickinson Shattuck, New Netherland Research Center

"In Childhood Pleasures, Barnes and Rose reveal the wonder of being a child in the seventeenth-century Netherlands and remind us of the basic human connections that exist between that distant world and ours."—Arthur K. Wheelock Jr., National Gallery of Art

"Food historians seek images to enhance our understanding of the texts we study. The authors are to be congratulated for seeking out such illuminating records of children’s pleasures. They simultaneously increase our knowledge and our delight."—Barbara Ketcham Wheaton, author of Savoring the Past: The French Kitchen and Table from 1300 to 1789
