Fabulous Pictures Jul 23, 2007
This year in our studies of Medieval History we will cover Spain. I wanted a picture book that represented past and present. As we unwrapped the book, the pictures are so stunning my 9 yr old commented that it felt like we were in Spain and could we go there. My daughter is now interested in learning more about Spain. Mission accomplished.
