Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Through the eyes of Rainolf, a boy at the court of Charlemagne, we catch a glimpse of life in the Frankish kingdom, including dress, occupations, and amusements. We learn how Charlemagne brought Alcuin from England to establish schools in his kingdom and how he encouraged the development of the arts, including the recitation of poetry such as the Song of Roland. We hear about Einhard, a close associate of Charlemagne, who wrote a biography of him after his death. Finally, we travel to Rome to see Charlemagne crowned Holy Roman Emperor on Christmas Day in 800 A.D.

Category Description for Our Little Cousin Series:

These "living book", unabridged reprintings of early 1900's stories are sure to appeal to history buffs-or 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
