Adventures in the Middle Ages Reviews
This is a fantastic book to engage students in reading and help them learn real information about the Middle Ages. This book is one of many in Linda Bailey's series, Good Times Travel Agency. These books follow the three Binkerton children on adventures to foreign lands and to times long past. The fictional time traveling adventures of these children are exciting and would probably interest readers of about 3rd and 4th grade. Alongside the fictional adventure, however, is accurately researched information about that time period presented in a very understandable, interesting way. It is a good opportunity to help students understand the differences between literature and informational texts. This book teaches all about life during the Middle Ages, including the feudal system, food, clothing, occupations, beliefs, architecture, and much more. The book provides accurate depictions of life then to help students understand the reality of living during the Middle Ages, not only the idealized picture sometimes portrayed in stories set in this period. It is a good introduction to the time period since it covers so many different aspects of life during that time. It would be a fantastic book to use at the beginning of a unit or project on the Middle Ages, sparking students' curiosity and giving them ideas about something specific they might want to study further. They will enjoy reading about the Binkerton children's adventures and learn right alongside them.
This is an exciting adventure of three siblings who accidentally travel back in time to the Middle Ages; done in a picture book/graphic novel format that even the most reluctant of readers will love. The character's story-line may be false, but the setting and all the wonderful information given throughout is very true. This is a great series to help elementary/middle school student's in their Ancient History studies, or just for a fun read. Educators may wish to break up into two reading sessions due to its length. These books do not need to be read in order to understand and enjoy.
A comic-book style story of siblings Josh and Emma who travel through time (Magic Tree House-style) to the Middle Ages. A "guidebook" printed at the bottom of each page give explanations of what is happening in the story. I found the comic book arrangement awkward and difficult to read. The guidebook at the bottom, however, was interesting. Grades 3-8
I liked this book, its a good way to learn about the middle ages in a funny way. I like the plot aswell, becuase instead of just staying in one place, they move to all the classes in medival times. I recamend this book to people who like history and graphic novels.
I like history and adventures and I like they combined together. It is also funny.
The kids love the comic book-y format of these stories. This book was chock full of info on the Middle Ages intertwined with the story of the misadventures of Josh, Libby and Emma. Fun!
