Reviews - What do customers think about Famous Men of the Middle Ages (Greenleaf Press)?

Fascinating Intro to an Overlooked Era  Aug 28, 2001
My children loved studying the Middle Ages, and this book was an effective (and non-threatening) way to introduce them to it. The Famous Men series uses short biographies to illustrate the era studied. As with the others in the series, Famous Men of the Middle Ages proved to be understandable to my third grader and informative for my seventh grader. All my children found the stories entertaining. In helping kids study this era, I also recommend: Days of Knights and Damsels by Laurie M. Carlson for fun, informative, and hands-activities and articles. The Greenleaf Guide to Famous Men of the Middle Ages, which provides discussion starters, a few activities and a listing of additional resources.
Not Bad At All  Aug 18, 2001
This is one of the most engaging history books I've ever read. The authors concentrate only on the facts and occurrences which really matter; the book was rarely boring. And it still manages to supply a sufficient amount of information. The only negative I perceived was that with the way the book is organized, with each chapter focusing on a different person, rather than period, was that it was disjointed, and virtually impossible to follow the big picture, the "story", if you will. However, this detracts very little from the book, which is an excellent source if you are interested in going in-depth on specific people, this book provides overviews for about 30 different people.
Famous Men of the Middle Ages Reaches Middle Elementary.  May 27, 2000
The "Famous Men" series continues to inform and inspire children by relating biographies of people from the Middle Ages.

Included in the 34 chapters are stories of: Attila, Justinian, Mohammed, Charlemagne, Alfred, El Cid, Robert Bruce and William Wallace, Joan of Arc, and Gutenberg.

"Famous Men of the Middle Ages" is a great introduction to this era that is often skimmed through. Allow your child to linger and delved more deeply when sparked by one of these stories.

Famous Men famously presented  Jan 13, 2000
This is an excellent survey of the men who shaped history in the middle ages. It brings history to life by allowing the reader to get to know the personalities of the men presented.
