  1. Both of those books look interesting. I have not read many picture books on that subject. I am going to see if I can find them at my library. Thanks for the suggestions.

  2. That sounds like so much fun! I’m so anxious to being history study with my children, but it will be a while before we get to Medieval times. Those books look neat because you can use them with young children, even if it’s mainly just for looking at the illustrations. Thanks for sharing these resources (and your daughters beautiful drawing!) at Trivium Tuesdays!

  3. Hi Amy! I don’t have a link up today (I made the notebooking pages instead), but we have been reading!!! We are reading “Who Was Marco Polo” and a great picture book about Mulan (the name escapes me right now). Anna just finished reading “Knight’s Castle” by herself… she thought it was really good. And of course we just finished our big Robin Hood unit study. I’m hoping to do a video tour of the notebook my daughter made because it was so much fun.

    Thanks for these Medieval recommendations. I think we could stay stuck in this time period for a long time!

  4. Thanks for hosting Read-Aloud Thursday again. We actually haven’t read many “Midieval” books, but one that comes to mind is The Knight and the Dragon by Tomie dePaola. We even got a copy signed during the National Book Festival in DC last year. Love your daughter’s picture, and thanks for the link to the definition of garderobe. I learned something new!

  5. We read about castles this week, too, in Ms. Frizzle’s Adventures: Medieval Castle. Seems like the history series will be just as much a hit in our house as the Magic School Bus science books.

  6. I haven’t heard of Come to the Castle but it looks like a good one to add to our collection. We have quite a few titles on this subject and read them frequently. Always nice to discover a new and different book!
    (BTW, I have two posts for RAT that I just need to WRITE. I’m coming back, I promise!)

  7. We liked “St. Jerome and the Lion” and “Across a Dark and Wild Sea” last fall, though those are more dark ages than middle ages.

    I checked out Favorite Medieval Tales by Mary Pope Osborne from the library and liked it enough to end up buying it for myself. It’s a nice collection of some of those classic Medieval tales.
