Publishers Description Ethelred s mother stood behind him. The archbishop smeared holy oil on Ethelred s shoulders and hands. He gave Ethelred a heavy sword and placed a gold crown on his head. The crown was too big it fell over his eyes, and Ethelred almost dropped the sword on the archbishop s foot. How did Ethelred become king when he was only ten years old? Territory W This unabridged reading by Jim Weiss of the book is 38 minutes on one audio CD, giving second-grade readers insight into the life of this explorer. About the series The classical curriculum introduces even the youngest student to the pleasures of true learning. Elementary students learn history not through predigested textbooks with multiple-choice answers, but through reading the stories of history. Unfortunately, biographies of great men and women of the past are almost all written for older students, limiting the ability of young students to explore history through reading. Libraries are crammed with biographies written for high school students and adults while beginning readers are provided with a shelf full of junior-level books about football players, NASCAR drivers, and movie stars. Now, Peace Hill Press puts real history back into the grasp of the youngest historians with the Who in the World Biography Series. The entries in the series provide young readers and their parents and teachers with biographies of great men and women of the Middle Ages. Designed to be used as part of The Story of the World curriculum, these biographies give beginning historians in grades 2 4 a chance to explore beyond the textbook. The accompanying book is also available separately.

Great Kids Book Jul 24, 2009
I bought this book because Ethelred the Unready is an ancestor of mine and I didn't know much about him. I plan on passing this book to my grandchildren so they can be knowledgeable of one of their direct line "great-grandfathers".
