As a homeschooling family we rate this book a 4 and a 4.5. It was easy reading, enjoyable, informative and a really good History book. I would definetely recommend this book to any child aged 7-12. Historically fascinating with very nice illustrations and kept our interest.
The whole set of these are a great resource tool to homeschoolers or any child that would like to know how it was to live back then. We love them. When we read them they are so interesting we have to read the whole thing at once, we can't put it down. Great!
