My son asked me if there had been any female knights. I thought of Joan of Arc and ordered this book. He was 5 at the time I purchased it and it held his interest all the way through. The illustrations were beautiful and there was just the right level of information / detail. There were some spots where it was tough for me, as I was reading it aloud, to keep track of the timing as far as how many years this was all taking place through, but I think for the intended audience, that is fine, and we can delve further into it with more mature works as the kids get older. All in all, an excellent introduction to Joan of Arc.

I wanted to love it, as we love to read and learn.... but this book just didn't captivate us. It felt more like a college class on Joan in children's book. The author does a great job and the illustrations are beautiful... it just wasn't what we needed at this time - and to be honest - I don't think I could ever sit through it. We love the "I am...." books by Meltzer, just for comparison. Totally personal preference.

Our granddaughter, age 8, has become very interested in Joan of Arc. I purchased this book because of recommendations I read on Amazon, and I was not disappointed. It is clear and concise and the illustrations are beautiful. We only just gave it to our granddaughter, so I will have to check back with her and see what she thinks, but I am pleased.

Great informative book. We bought for a book report. I think kids were not as interested but had to read it. It's a good reference on Joan's life. Interesting facts & accounts. Based on actual trial transcripts from her trial that are still in existence.

Great for children. Traveling to France and this is a wonderful book to introduce them to a part of the history of France. I also have three daughters so this was a fun story to introduce them too!

This book is beautiful! Every page is so pretty. We read the book as an extra added in with our homeschooling history curriculum. It was a hit with all four of my kids. Their ages range from 5-13.
