My 9 year old is homeschooled and was asked to read this as part of her history coop class. We both really felt it was a bit much for her and she struggled with understanding it! I really don't see the excitement in it at all. Neither of us are history buffs, so maybe that's why, but we will look for something a little less overwhelming and easier to learn for history.
I bought the entire set but my kids, ages 7 and 9, have only started reading this one. My kids are not home schooled and I bought this set as an enrichment activity after reading an article about home schooling in the paper. Susan has a way of writing that really capture's my children's attention. My kids are also learning about history as well as geography because we reference maps as we are reading. Highly recommend this series!
This book is a great addition to our family library. It gives a brief historical overview of the regions of the world during the specific time period of the Middle Ages. Has pictures, stories, and trivia to add to each section. She asks questions in each chapter that are thought provoking and engage you as a reader. Although my children go to public school I was looking for something to add to their historical knowledge to help fill in the gaps they are not getting at school. This book makes history interesting and also great to read as an adult. I have read it aloud to my 5 and 9 year old and they get it and love it. Looking forward to reading the other volumes.
I love these books. My daughter grabbed this one right out of the box and just started reading it. She found it hard to put down. She is really interested in this part of history and these books put it into such an easy to read way that we love it. She is 10 and just became interested in reading about a year ago.
