SOTW 2 for 7th grader..


Recommended Posts

We will be reading this out loud. What would be a good book for her to read...

Island Story, Story of the Middle Ages(Miller)?

WHat would you suggest?


Thank you


I'm not sure that a 7th grader would really get into the writing style of SOTW...but if you have experience with this (which I don't), please ignore my ignorance! It's just written in a way that, it seems to me, would appeal much more to grade-schoolers.


Ditto with Our Island Story, though I'd say that it's maybe a BIT more difficult than SOTW. We LOVE OIS here, but my dd is 6yo.


Sounds like you're looking for a second "spine." Is that right? Not supplemental readings?

I recommend you look into Suzanne Strauss Art's medieval and renaissance books; I used them for a 5th grader (in combination with Kingfisher and supplementary reading), and it worked out great. SSA spends more time discussing artistic developments in these books than in her wonderful books on Greece and Rome.



Good luck!
