    This is a wonderfully engaging and detailed resource. We have enjoyed reading it every night as a family and the kids can’t get enough. Devouring is an appropriate level of involvement here! The language is just the right level where the young ones generally get the gist and the older ones are enraptured. My husband was a history major in college and says there are details in this book that he never heard of.

    If you were to trace your family tree deep into the middle ages and beyond as we did (to the 400s in one case) and then discover this book, history would come alive in a whole new way.

    This book also tends to make looking up things on a map exciting… for someone who’s never been into geography, that says a lot.

    We lost it for about two months in the middle of an adventure-charged section and the kids and I were annoyed to have to read ‘Bambi’ (so dull) while we waited to rediscover A Castle With Many Rooms.

    Highly recommended.
