Children's Literature - Cindy K. Schofield
This series of books about the warriors of four different cultures covers subject matter that is not common to most early readers, but is a topic that fascinates kids. The books are well written and illustrated; though one weakness is the map included at the end of each one. Intended to appear as an aged atlas of the globe, it is hard to read and will challenge a child attempting to identify the warrior locations highlighted. The last page of each book is a trisection of information—a very brief glossary of words highlighted in the text, a bibliography with related resources, and an index to each individual title. This title is an introduction to the lives of knights from the early middle ages to the end of their fighting days in the 1500s. With a combination of simple drawings, prints of historic paintings and representations of period art, the weapons, armor, education, and lifestyles of knights are simply described. While today's knights are no longer fighters, their legacy and continued presence as honored citizens is described. The book is a good introduction to "knight life" and the feudal political structure within which they had a role. Part of "The Great Warriors" series. Reviewer: Cindy K. Schofield
