     This amazing book combines knowledge and puzzle: a paper toy with an archeological twist! With a definition of archeology, children will explore and try out the detective work necessary to understand history. Children will learn about Medieval life and warfare, including knights and sieges. Once they have a good working knowledge of the period, they will explore an archaeological site. They study a castle dig site much like a detective, examining clues and the different parts of a castle to help them construct a picture of what the castle looked like, who lived there, and what kind of siege weapons and battle tactics were used. Once they have a thorough understanding of the castle, they’ll reconstruct a castle using the included glossy cardstock puzzle pieces. Placement instructions are not included so children will demonstrate learning as they fit the castle pieces together to create an amazing 3D castle! Wonderful hands-on project for your history studies! 80 pgs, pb. ~ Deanne

With a quick intro and general safety guidelines, each chapter looks at historical events and situations before providing you with clear, step-by-step instructions, diagrams and photographs for creating a fully-fortified home. Topically, you will learn about Genghis Khan and the Mongols, while learning to build a catapult, a crossbow and a smoke bomb; Attila the Hun while devising a hidden book safe and palisade wall; Alexander the Great-making a bullet proof shield; as well as many other defensive devices. The author also explains the science behind many projects, making this a valuable supplement to your history or science curricula or an appealing father-son project book as they strive to defend their home at all costs against the invading hordes, and learn just a bit more about ourselves, our history and the sciences! 168 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

    Simpler to assemble than similar products, but the end result is something your younger children will be proud of. While our older children assembled the more difficult model, our younger daughters easily completed this castle - all by themselves. While the publisher's recommended age is "4 and up," the help of an older child or parent would be needed for accurate cutting and assembling if your child is under the age of seven or so.

This building set has over 90 pieces that are printed on both sides and are die cut (the castle pieces as well as two opposing armies’ worth of soldiers). They assemble with slots and the directions are pretty simple to follow. The pieces themselves are like a layer of craft foam sandwiched between two layers of cardstock. The included 40 pages softcover book contains info about the different kinds of soldiers included (axe men, kings, queens, knights, assassins, archers, and more!) as well as life in the castle. Everything fits nicely inside of a colorful box for safe keeping. Great for your castle enthusiast or as a way to bring history to life! – Laura

    After going to Baltimore, Maryland, to stay with their aunt and cousins while their father is in the hospital, Roger and Ann find themselves caught up in a world of adventure! It all started harmlessly enough, with a viewing of Ivanhoe and a brand new toy castle replete with medieval figures. But after falling asleep one night, Roger finds himself shrunken down to the size of his toy knights and back in the olden days of 12th century England. Soon he is mistaken by his toys for a magic elf and becomes something of a nuisance to the Normans and a hero to the Saxons. When he wakes up the next morning, he tells his sister and his cousins all about his adventures. Before long, all four of them are questing together during their nighttime rest in the world Ivanhoe, fighting on the side of Sir Wilfred, Rebecca, and Robin Hood. However, they can only come back once every three nights. A lot seems to change in that course of time, especially when the children have so much playing to do in the daytime. Just building a cityscape out of household items will drastically affect the world of their toys. What could turn Sir Wilfred into a sci-fi nerd? What turn of events could lead to the reformation of so evil a knight as Bois-Guilbert? Join the four children in their comical journeys as they set out to overthrow an evil prince, unite true love, and save a kingdom! Softcover, 212 pages. Written by Edward Eager.
