Product Description:

Fourth in the A Child's Geography series, this one or two semester course studies the vast and tiny kingdoms that made up Western Europe, along with the modern day countries of Western Europe. Picking up where the A Child's Geography Volume 3: Explore the Classical World (#007672) ended, this book explores the tumultuous times between the Classical era and the Renaissance. While having a basic knowledge of the Classical period is helpful in understanding the nuances of the Middle Ages, it is not necessary to complete the other volumes in the series before embarking on this journey.

Written in a similar style to the preceding volumes, history and geography are taught with a living book approach that weaves together engaging text and vibrant photographs and graphics. Students will truly feel as if they are walking in the footsteps of the great minds from the medieval world like Charlemagne, Ferdinand and Isabella, Joan of Arc, Johannes Gutenberg, and Martin Luther while exploring Spain, Portugal, France, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and the tiny kingdoms: Andorra, Monaco, Liechtenstein and Luxembourg.

While the textbook is a standalone resource for readings and narration exercises, the author has provided a website link to download additional activities. This includes timelines for each chapter, maps to label (and completed maps), hands- on activities that include games and craft projects, recipes, supplemental reading resources, prayer guide and much more. Additional links are scattered throughout the text which provide media resources on a variety of topics. Chapters include bold vocabulary words with a glossary in the back. 240 pgs, SC. ~ Deanne

Volume 1 is going well so far and child shows interest in castles, queens, etcetera so this will be next in line to prepare for trip to Renaissance Festival.

We just finished A Child's Geography: Explore the Classical World and really enjoyed it, so now we're moving on to Exploring Medieval Kingdoms. I desperately want to travel to so many places featured in this book. This book focuses on what life is like for those who live there, how world events have affected them, what their history has been and the amazing places to visit in each country. We also love seeing what people eat and trying their recipes!

We enjoyed traveling through Europe in our imaginations with this book, and getting to know the countries and their geography, history, food and culture. I read it aloud to my children ranging from high school down to first grade.

bravo!
A Child's Geography is such a great book. I don't even think I can call it a book because it is so much more that. It is even more than a curriculum because it takes you on a journey through Western Europe which allows you to fully immerse yourself in a time period long ago while also capturing what it is like today in its present state. When I told my children we were starting a new geography curriculum they all said "oh nooooo!", but when we actually started reading the book and it was time to move on to our next subject they said " oh noooo, keep reading!" Terri combined geography, history, and a great story to create this masterpiece, which is well written and beautiully illustrated. From the very first sentence you will be hooked. We sure were.
BTW, the book is printed on thick, glossy paper. It is very high quality. I can't wait to get the rest of the series.

Wish I had this years ago!
I love this series! It is written in an engaging way that allows you and your student to not only learn about the geography of a particular region, but also learn about the history, culture, traditions, and foods. It is also very visual with numerous colored photos, timelines, and maps throughout the 240 page book. I was so impressed with this volume that I have purchased the entire series and look forward to volume V! While my son is reading this for school, I find I'm reading it for pure enjoyment! This is the kind of resource that makes learning fun!
