This book is great for children who are working on reading but who yearn for intellectual stimulation which is missing from the other books they get to read. The plot is fascinating and the story provides interesting historical information. A real winner.

Once your child has moved beyond easy phonetic readers, you'll want to find interesting books with large print that aren't too difficult or overwhelming for the new reader. Bulla's "The Sword in the Tree" fits this description perfectly.
Try reading the first chapter to your young reader to spark his interest. Then read the next chapter or two aloud together so he/she becomes familiar with the words and flow. Then sit back and listen as your child finishes reading this exciting book about greed, courage, and chivalry.

Format: Hardcover
This book is an excellent source for "medieval" units. I have used it with weak 5th grade English as a Second language readers and they are very successful with it. It teaches grade level content at a lower reading level. They do not feel they are reading an easy book. It is a wonderful starter book for reluctant readers.

Format: Paperback
(written by 9 year old reader of book)
There are 14 chapters in this book. It has people like King Arthur. It has a sword in it. And it has a battle in it. There is an Oak Tree that is the tree. There is a picture in every chapter. You will like this story. Do not take my word for it, look for this book in the library or the book store.
(note from parent:)
My son really enjoyed reading The Sword in the Tree, just as he has other books by Bulla. They are excellent even for relunctant readers like the one who wrote the above review.

I read this out loud to my 4-year-old son, who loves anything involving King Arthur, and he was captivated. His only disappointment was that there is no book to follow with more tales of the young Shan and his adventures. I highly recommend this as well as other historical fiction by Bulla. I have also read "Pocahontas and the Strangers" to my son, and he loved that as well.

Bought this for my son in 2nd grade. Great book for him to read. He finished in in two days but was his second book to read all by himself. He thought it ended to abruptly and wished there was a second one.

Format: Paperback
My five year old son is homeschooled. Noteably, he's a huge fanatic of anything related to the King Arthur era. This year we are involved in a Classical Conversations group that recommended this book along with others to go along with our history. It's very fitting. We own "Pirate's Promise" from the same author. I read that one to our son at the age of three and we continue to read it once a year. This book is just as good as the other. I highly recommend both to any young child who enjoys an easy to read adventure! This will hold their attention!
