Product Description:

What a story of passion. Young Gutenberg's love of books and reading was a hard thing in the days when books were all copied out by hand. It was an agonizing wait sometimes, and Gutenberg's dream was to find some way of speeding up the making of books. We remember him as the man who invented both moveable type and the printing press, but we hear very little of the struggles it took to bring that to fruition. This book uses simple language to tell this rollercoaster of a story. 64 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

From 500 A.D. to 1530 A.D., this literature approach to history takes students through the medieval period via some of the best classic and historic literature available. Students read works by classic authors such as Shakespeare, Chaucer, and Sir Walter Scott. They learn about heroic figures of the time like Wycliffe, Tyndale, Joan of Arc, Luther, Saladin and more. This one-year course has been revised and the publishers have broken the study into two guides; one for intermediate/junior high grades, and one for high school. The guides are now full-color. The Intermediate/Junior High guide features 35 weekly lessons with reading assignments, mapping activities, research and discussion topics, hands-on and craft suggestions, vocabulary lists and more.

I love my kids to read about history. I'm also in the printing industry so I thought it would be fun.

While this book was easy to read it was not as good as other books we've read about Gutenberg It focused on the business practices of the day I would recommend Ink on His Fingers instead
