    It's easy to take a trip back in time with this story-like book full of gorgeously illustrated knights and castles! Reprinted from a 1957 children's book, this title by Jack Coggins explores the fact and fiction surrounding medieval knights, what life was like during medieval times, medieval weapons and suits of armor, how castles were used as defenses and how they were attacked, the battles and crusades that the knights fought in, tournaments, hunting, the knight's code of honor, and much more. The text is large and easy-to-read, and the illustrations (by the author) are full of detail and drama. In true retro fashion, pages alternate between full-color illustrations and black-and-white illustrations. Because it reads more like a story than a "topic book" which has been picked apart and over-organized, readers can wander though the book and enjoy the whole history and lifestyle of medieval knights that is offered. 105 pages, pb. - Jess

    The knight in shining armor! It's hard to imagine a more masculine image. The knight embodied loyalty, courage, leadership, honesty, self-discipline, integrity, and perseverance. Author Robert Lewis wants to renew the vision that medieval fathers had for their sons. His desire stems from disappointment in his own upbringing from an "absentee" father, and he hopes that fathers today will not make the same mistake. Lewis outlines steps to bring our sons along the path to manhood just as the knights had a prescribed course of training. And just as ceremony marked the graduation of a young man from squire to knight, Lewis offers ideas for ceremonies to celebrate the passing of our sons into manhood. Consider these ideas as we prepare our sons to serve the King. 194 pgs, pb.

       Studying the medieval period with multiple ages? This retelling of Sir Gawain (nephew of King Arthur and knight of the round table) and his adventures is written specifically to draw in your upper elementary/middle school readers. While written for younger audiences (includes larger font size as well), there’s no skimping in style or vocabulary, maintaining much of the original’s key plot as well as the moral dilemmas. The multiple black and white watercolor and pastel drawings range from filling portions of a page to two-page spreads. Note: the story involves mythical and sometimes gruesome elements. Some of the drawings highlight this (the headless green knight) and two drawings show the outline of a female figure in rather transparent garb. 5x7 3/4", 177 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

     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
