"Our Little Frankish Cousins" tells of a fictional 12-year-old page who lives during the reign of Charlemagne. The short text is very accessible for children 8 and older to read to themselves, and would otherwise make a fine read aloud. The story, though fictionalized, gives real detail about life, clothing, entertainment, and occupation during the Frankish kingdom. Seeing daily life through the eyes of young Rainolf brings the time period to life in a way that a textbook simply couldn't do. Told in a high quality prose. this book will leave readers with a better sense of what daily life consisted of for the Franks, and entertain them on the way. Enjoy!
