Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carly Reagan
Venture inside their thatched roof homes and learn about a typical day in the life of a medieval peasant. One in a series of "Medieval Lives" books, each providing a detailed look at a specific member of medieval society. Beginning with a brief introduction to the history of peasants and the feudal system, then covering the life of a peasant from birth until death, a wealth of facts are provided in short, easy-to-read paragraphs. From service to freedom, difficulties to entertainment, each subject is somehow both summarized and specific, with fun facts on each page to enhance the main topic. Visuals are provided by means of a mixture of illustrations, old fashioned paintings, and real life photos, and they appear frequently, on every page, to help keep the reader engaged. Incorporate into the classroom when covering medieval history to explore deeper into the lives of specific members of society than the basic history textbook is able, helping students gain a fuller understanding of the era as a whole.
