  1. Hi Amy! First of all – happy birthday a day late (I have you beat by 2 years!). I hope you had a great day yesterday. 🙂

    Thank you for all the wonderful Medieval book recommendations. We are right in that time period now – just finished Son of Charlemagne and are reading Songs of Roland right now. My daughter LOVES all of the “You Wouldn’t Want to Be A….” books – she has read them over and over. Right now she has the Incan Mummy one checked out from the library.

    I got a used copy of Hans Brinker last week and can’t wait to start it with my kids – as well as A Door in The Wall. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with all of the books out there to read!

    I loved your post today!

  2. Happy happy birthday friend!! : )

    Of course, a couple other books that I feel compelled to immediately add to N1’s reading list. : ) I actually almost looked up A Door in the Wall yesterday at the library, but decided I didn’t know enough about it to grab it just yet. She also loves those “you wouldn’t want to …” books when I remember to get them and I forget about those, too!

  3. We missed this one when we were in the medieval times. We really enjoyed A Door in the Wall though and this looks like one to put on the list to enjoy one day. My kids LOVE the You Wouldn’t Want to Be… books. And actually, so do I. 🙂

  4. I have Adam of the Road currently from the library, and I think my daughter and I are going to start it as soon as we finish our current read-aloud. We’re currently reading “Hitty”… I love it so much that we’re reading it pretty fast. Two chapters per night instead of our usual one chapter per night of many of our read-alouds!

  5. Thanks for hosting! I’m sneaking in right at the end of this Thursday. 🙂 I have to get some of those You Wouldn’t Want to.. books from the library for my kids to try out.

  6. Belated happy birthday! This is such a rich rich post! Very beautifully made alongside the parallels to other award-winning books. Your kids are lucky to have you read to them every night. I have heard so much about The Door in the Wall but have not had a chance to read it yet. Many thanks for the recommendations! I am putting this up as well on Pinterest. 🙂
