zenjenn Posted June 25, 2012 Share Posted June 25, 2012 Doing some planning for SotW Volume 2 next year, integrated reading. I will have a 2nd grader and a 4th grader. Last year, we did a lot of integrated reading. LOVED it, but there were limited options for ancients. We love historical fiction, as well as things like children's classics. Last year, we found some gems, but also a few ho-hum reads (A Place in the Sun, and Maia of Thebes kinda flopped, while Mary Pope Osborne's children's version of The Odyssey and the D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths were huge hits, and the kids learned a lot.) But my kids generally enjoy historical fiction, such as the American Girl books. I found this list: http://bookgirl3.tripod.com/middleages.htm which looks like a great resource but too many to choose from. Anyone have any big recommendations? Any great, accessible versions of King Arthur Legends, Robin Hood, etc. would also be fantastic. Anything period-topical with non-European settings would also be fantastic. Thanks in advance!
