Item Description...
Just as the Bible uses the stories of the Patriarchs, Judges, Prophets, and Kings to teach us, so we hope that our history units on Israel, Egypt, Greece, Rome and the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the Reformation will be useful in teaching your children about the traits God desires. The Greenleaf Guides and the companion titles in the Famous Men series emphasize biography, so that you can focus on issues of character and the consequences, both temporal and eternal, of the choices which historical figures made so that we--and our children-- can learn to make wise choices in our lives. The stories can read aloud to younger students, or read independently by older students, either as the focus of their study or as a supplement. Instructors will find them useful with students from second grade through junior high.

Publishers Description
Not the same as other Famous Men reprints - This one is better 190+ illustrations to go with the stories, five new chapters added by historian Rob Shearer on Augustine, Patrick, St. Francis, St. Benedict, and Hildebrandt. The stories begin with the tales of the Bishops who saved civilization: Augustine & Patrick. And the Germanic chiefs who defeated the Romans: Alaric, Genseric, and Theodoric. Then come stories of the famous kings of the Franks: Clovis, Charles Martel, and Charlemagne. The second half of the book includes chapters on Justinian, Mohammed, Harun-Al-Rashid, El Cid, William the Conqueror, Frederick Barbarossa, Tamerlane, Marco Polo, and Joan of Arc. The stories of many of these figures can't be found for children anywhere else. Don't just show children pictures of castles; let them read the stories of those who built them and lived in them.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fascinating Intro to an Overlooked Era  Aug 28, 2001
My children loved studying the Middle Ages, and this book was an effective (and non-threatening) way to introduce them to it. The Famous Men series uses short biographies to illustrate the era studied. As with the others in the series, Famous Men of the Middle Ages proved to be understandable to my third grader and informative for my seventh grader. All my children found the stories entertaining. In helping kids study this era, I also recommend: Days of Knights and Damsels by Laurie M. Carlson for fun, informative, and hands-activities and articles. The Greenleaf Guide to Famous Men of the Middle Ages, which provides discussion starters, a few activities and a listing of additional resources.
Not Bad At All  Aug 18, 2001
This is one of the most engaging history books I've ever read. The authors concentrate only on the facts and occurrences which really matter; the book was rarely boring. And it still manages to supply a sufficient amount of information. The only negative I perceived was that with the way the book is organized, with each chapter focusing on a different person, rather than period, was that it was disjointed, and virtually impossible to follow the big picture, the "story", if you will. However, this detracts very little from the book, which is an excellent source if you are interested in going in-depth on specific people, this book provides overviews for about 30 different people.
Famous Men of the Middle Ages Reaches Middle Elementary.  May 27, 2000
The "Famous Men" series continues to inform and inspire children by relating biographies of people from the Middle Ages.

Included in the 34 chapters are stories of: Attila, Justinian, Mohammed, Charlemagne, Alfred, El Cid, Robert Bruce and William Wallace, Joan of Arc, and Gutenberg.

"Famous Men of the Middle Ages" is a great introduction to this era that is often skimmed through. Allow your child to linger and delved more deeply when sparked by one of these stories.

Famous Men famously presented  Jan 13, 2000
This is an excellent survey of the men who shaped history in the middle ages. It brings history to life by allowing the reader to get to know the personalities of the men presented.
