    We’re doing the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Reformation module.  He’s read or listened to:

    Minstrel in the Tower

    Adam of the Road

    Castle Diary

    Viking Adventure

    Door in the Wall

    Sword in the Tree

    Leif the Lucky

    What else can I give him to read on his own?  He’s still pretty new to reading history books on his own, but is choosing to read them instead of his ‘fun exciting’ books because he ‘just has to know what happens next’.  So, yay!!!  Living books work.  I just need to keep it going and I’m stumped.


    I assigned the Crispin trilogy to my ds10. He really enjoyed it, and it fits nicely with the module. The author is Avi.


    I have my ds12 scheduled to read Otto of the Silver Hand by Pyle and The Trumpeter of Krakow by Eric Kelly after he is finished with a Landmark – Genghis Khan and the Mongol Horde by Harold Lamb.  

    My son also really enjoyed Son of Charlemange by Barbara Willard, which I believe is a TQ recommendation.  This is actually one of my son’s favorite reads so far this year.



    Has he read any of the books recommended for grades 1-3? We typically read those as a family, but if he hasn’t read then yet, they are really good. My son loved Pippo the Fool, A Medieval Feast, and Journal of Tobias Burgess.


    Yes, Lindsey, he has.  Because I have his younger brother tagging along I have been reading the 1-3 books outloud and 10-year-old listens in. 

    I’ll show him a list of the books you all mentioned and see which he’d like to read.  Thank you!
