Editorial Reviews

From the big battles to kings and warriors, from peasants to palaces, this lavishly illustrated book is a visual feast and full of information on the medieval world. Follow the Crusades to the Holy Land, explore China with Marco Polo and visit a Mayan ball game. Find out how a knight trained for battle, who invented fireworks and who the Vandals were. Excellent color illustrations, photographs, maps and more! History is presented according to civilization geographically (rather than jumping from nation to nation chronologically), making it so much easier to follow and remember. Another incredible feature is that it is internet-linked! You can visit age-appropriate internet sites from reputable universities and museums throughout the world and get up-to-date information and exciting activities. Usborne reviews all links and keeps them up-to-date. Paperback, ages 11 to adult.

Simple, straightforward text and pictures give a terrific overview of what was going on in the Medieval World. A jumping off place for getting more in depth. Maps and graphics are beautiful. The internet links are very helpful as well.

I plan to spend the next six months reading books set in the Medieval period to my seven year old son. I thought Usborne's "Medieval World" would be a good place to start. Right off the bat, it is absurd to think that any 96 page illustrated book can do 1,500 years of world history any justice. There is just too much history to be covered in such a short format. But as an introduction, "Medieval World" gave my seven year old a pleasurable hint of what lay ahead in the next six months. My only wish is that Usborne had narrowed its focus and only concentrated on Europe for a shorter period of time.

Great as home schooling books as well as curious kid books. I love that it is Internet linked. This provides an extra layer of learning. The links are always age appropriate.

I ordered this book to go along with my homeschool curriculum. It's an awesome book! Each page is full of colorful illustrations. I also love that this book is internet linked, which means that you can go to the Usborne website and find great information online. We looked at a few online videos that really helped my daughter understand and get more interested in the subjects we were studying.
