How many of you have your own bedroom?  How many share your room with someone else?  A brother or sister?  Well, if you lived before 1700, odds are that you would share your bedroom with the whole family.  And servants.  And guests.  And anyone who was passing by.  And if you lived in ancient times, you wouldn't have a bedroom at all!  Even in the middle ages, people just slept in the same hall where they ate and visited.  At the end of the evening meal, everyone would get some hay and make a bed for themselves on the floor.  Hence the term, making the bed.  Learn all sorts of neat facts about beds, bedrooms and pajamas in this interesting book.
