These living book, unabridged reprintings of early 1900's stories are sure to appeal to history buffsor just about any adventure lover. Highlighting ancient cultures, each little cousin introduces a character from a different culture and time: the Athenians, the Franks, Celts, Crusaders, and more. In our home, we had difficulty finding simultaneously challenging and appealing, yet appropriate books for strong readers of these ages. These books cover historical concepts like raids and wars, but appropriately. Visually, I found the books appealing; the font is a good size and there is proper spacing between lines. Occasional black and white drawings emphasize the text. A preface written directly to the reader and phonetic aid for name pronunciation helps young readers dig in and enjoy. Note that the 1900's vernacular and writing style hasn't been changed, but this fact does not significantly hinder reader accessibility. Approx. 100 pp each, sc. ~ Ruth
